No. 6 brings together the art of The Macallan Whisky Maker with Laliqueӳ exquisite craftsmanship to create a stunning whisky encased in the finest, and most stylish, crystal decanter.
This rich, complex single malt takes its unique natural colour and character from the first fill Spanish sherry seasoned oak casks handcrafted by the master craftsmen of Jerez de la Fronteraу, the home of sherry. The cooperage exclusively creates Spanish oak casks which, once seasoned with sherry, give the unique, rich flavour of this exquisite whisky. It is from this one single cooperage that these casks are taken in order to ensure the infinite quality and character at the heart of The Macallan.
An enticing, rich dark walnut colour delivers classic Macallan character, a celebration of richness, spice and dried fruit with a layer of heady orange groves.

|Cask||Spanish ex-Jerez casks|
|Tasting Notes||Colour: Spanish Sunset|
Nose: Spanish oak casks deliver wonderful rich notes, elegant and polished. Raisin, dates and figs dominate like a mountain of fruit; sultana and toffee apples add texture and depth. The weight of flavour practically squeezes the juice from the raisins, dark and rich with great viscosity. ginger and cinnamon gently dance around the edges - the ginger slightly dry, the cinnamon soft. dark chocolate is majestic, whilst vanilla sweetness lingers in the background.
Palate: Heavy and sumptuous. Like a rich fruit cake with raisin, dates and figs, apples, sultanas, orange; then ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon and hints of clove. Oak notes are like velvet, soft and chic.
Finish: Silky smooth, this is a cake to savour with a long and full finish.
