Mr. Teoman Hünal, who is a gourmand and who was the first to import single malt whisky and The Macallan to Turkey opened this bottle for us after a beer tasting. Macallan 7 year old was specially produced for Italian market. It is now a collectible item.
Just like Mr. Hünal, the generosity of the whisky was gorgeous. This is certainly one of the best Macallan expressions I have tasted despite the 40% abv
Italian market used to be a home for numerous younger whiskies from different distilleries. Different importers made it happen especially in 90s. This one was bottled for Maxxium Italia in Milano.
Macallan 7 year old is a beautiful showcase of how a young unpeated whisky can be just amazing! Don’t ever wonder if you find another bottle of this great malt.
