If burning was the only flavor you could detect over your last glass of whiskey, then the libation masters at The Macallan have just the thing to keep you from looking like at dolt at the next whiskey tasting. Many people look at craftsmanship of whiskey as a fine art. Each glass represents a flavor odyssey that only the experienced connoisseur can truly appreciate. Getting past the overwhelming burst of firey alcohol that whiskey carries can be a tricky business, but it is integral to understanding and experiencing the complex and varied flavor profiles that accompany expertly crafted whiskeys.
Combining forces with the celebrated British perfumer Roja Dove, The Macallan created a Sensory Experience for the budding Whiskey drinker. Boasting over 12 scents that represent common whiskey notes, the duo sets about familiarizing the shy, inexperienced palate with the various flavors whiskeys are capable of possessing. Presented in a handcrafted oak box created by Scottish cabinet-maker Duke Christie, The Macallan and Roja Dove Sensory Experience is a boozy take on the Japanese Kodo ceremony, which pays tribute to the art and associated customs of incense.
Sure to whip your sniffer into shape, The Macallan and Roja Dove Sensory Experience will have you nosing fine whiskey alongside seasoned veterans in no time.
