The Macallan 7 years old Armando Giovinetti Selection /40%/0,7l – The Macallan 7 years old Armando Giovinetti Selection /40%/0,7l – The Macallan Distillery was founded in 1824 by Alexander Reid under the name Elchies. In 1892 it was renamed Macallan-Glenlivet by the new owner Roderick Kemp (the Glenlivet suffix was dropped in 1982). Macallan 7 years old debuted in the early 1980s. The whisky was aged exclusively in ex-sherry casks and bottled for the Italian importer Giovinetti & Figli. (Armando Giovinetti is credited for having reinvented the Scotch whisky market in Italy; he introduced Glen Grant in the 1970s). Those days the Italians developed taste for young single malts and Macallan was effectively competing with 5 years old Aberlour, Balblair and Glen Grant. The bottling was discontinued in the early 2000s.

Nose: fresh with notes of malt and sherry, candlewax, apple pie, grapes, caramel, butterscotch, walnuts and hints of herbs.

Palate: not too complex but nicely balanced, apples, oranges, plums, honey, tobacco leaves, hazelnuts, traces of cocoa and pepper.

Finish: medium long, malty, slightly nutty with notes of sherried oak and pepper.
