Manufacturer Description

The Macallan Easter Elchies 2013 is the only 17 year old in the Elchies range. Matured in a Sherry butt cask and distilled in 1996. The first batch was sold out very quickly and only 340 bottles of this limited edition were made.
Nose
Nose: this one, while being even more sherried than the 18, also displays more bourbony notes that may come from some very active oak. Like, pencil shavings. Apart from that, it's a maelstrom of dried fruits including small berries as well as a few mentholated notes like we found in the 18. Prunes, raspberries, dates, kumquats (there, Marcel), cassis, then more cinnamon and cocoa powder, more cassis, a lot of cassis... Crème de Cassis Dijon-style? With water: goes toward the 18, only with more freshish oak. So more pencil shavings, but also more fruitcake and spearmint.
Palate
Mouth (neat): as creamy as honey and as thick as, well, honey. Almost some kind of tutti frutti jam with some green pepper, cloves, mint, liquorice and cinnamon. You may need a spoon rather than a glass! Big bitter oranges too. With water: rum and raisins emerge, and so do blood oranges and cinnamon. A wee touch of ginger from the oak.
Finish
Finish: very long, a bit greener, which isn't unpleasant. Mint-flavoured liquorice. That leaves you with an unexpected fresh and clean aftertaste.
