The Macallan Harmony Collection Fine Cacao Whisky – A Travel Retail Exclusive
A whiff of chocolate, a hint of raisins, figs, toffee and marzipan; a smooth taste and medium finish. Cheers!
Thank you brand ambassador Mr Randall Tan, writes Mike Smith as his first sampling of The Macallan Harmony Collection Fine Cacao whisky, which spotlights the Macallan sustainability journey at its global launch at the Mallow Restaurant, Hotel Intercontinental, Nanson Road, was delightful.
To create the Fine Cacao edition, The Macallan Whisky maker Polly Logan visited Girona, Spain, where she explored the chocolate making process with world renowned pastry chef, Jordi Roca and integrated the flavours into a single highlands malt whisky.
To add value and entertainment to the whisky launch Asia's top pastry chef Janice Wong continued the sustainability and chocolate theme as she guided us through planting cacao seeds to grow future trees and a fascinating detailed chocolate making workshop. In her collaboration with Macallan she generously presented us with samples of her hand crafted Macallan flavoured chocolate.
What is whisky at lunchtime without food? Host Mallow Restaurant provided a delicate light lunch of delicious "tartlet tears",
"Shrooms", an herbed oyster ravioli with pickled mushrooms and leak broth followed by a "Silky Chocolate" dessert. Thanks to chef owner Christina Rasmusse for her subtle flavours.
Singapore is the first in the world to launch sales of the Macallan Harmony Fine Cacao Whisky at a pop-up stall at Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 3 Departure Hall. The pop-up represents The Macallan's sustainability journey, showcasing a retail space created and built from re-purposed materials.
Retailing at SG $215, the whisky is also available at Singapore Changi Airport Lotte Duty Free shops and will be introduced more widely to global travel retail hubs from mid-May 2022. Interestingly its unique marketing property is that It is only available at retail outlets at airports.
