The Macallan’s Harmony Collection is a limited annual release series that’s driven by the brand’s curiosity, innovativeness and creative mindset; and with its first release, the “Rich Cacao”, the series has proven to be incredibly successful, with collectors buying up every bottle they can find. This year sees the second edition — Inspired by Intense Arabica.
Its aroma has notes of tiramisu, cappuccino, gingerbread, raisins, almonds, sweet oak and vanilla, while the palate includes similar flavours of espresso, dark chocolate, raisin, tiramisu, blackberry, vanilla, Brazil nut and sweet oak.
While the previous edition was based on chocolate, this second expression explores the world of coffee.
“To create the coffee-inspired second edition of The Harmony Collection, I sought out intense notes in The Macallan’s traditional sherry seasoned European oak casks that would offer the rich and satisfying elements of coffee, with the influence of sherry seasoned American oak casks adding sweeter and softer vanilla notes for a balanced and rounded experience.” says Steven Bremner, Whisky Maker, The Macallan.
And to pay homage to its coffee inspiration, the bottle is packaged in a presentation box that incorporates repurposed coffee bean husks, a by-product in the coffee-making process.
To celebrate this new release, The Macallan will be hosting an experience for both whisky and coffee fans to enjoy this new variant. The pop-up happens from 9-18 December 2022 at The Macallan Boutique at Raffles Hotel. You can register for it here.
The Macallan Harmony Collection Inspired by Intense Arabica is priced at $288 and available at The Macallan Boutique at Raffles Hotel Singapore, The Macallan ONLINE BOUTIQUE and in selected premium retailers from December 2022.
