What Would You be Drinking if You Were a Mighty CEO?

Choosing the right brand and bottle of Scotch can be as personal as choosing the perfect fragrance or timepiece; each is a unique combination of flavours and tastes that are as much a reflection of the spirit's complexity as a person's individual preferences. Known for their commitment to quality and craftsmanship, The Macallan offers a diverse range of Scotch profiles that speak to many based on personality, interest and other identifying factors. From the mighty CEO to the start-up savant, we paired the perfect bottle for five distinct professions. Which one fits you?

The Bottle: Gold

For: The Startup Savant

The life of a talented startup entrepreneur is a dynamic one marked by the excitement of starting something with much promise and potential. The Macallan’s Gold echoes the same characteristics as the introduction into the 1824 Series. Bold and decisive with citrus notes and hints of ginger and cinnamon, it’s not afraid to make its presence known. 

 

The Bottle: Amber

For: The Master Architect

How often is it that you take notice of the buildings around you? The colossal towers that stand before us often blend seamlessly into the backgrounds of our daily experiences, yet upon closer inspection, can be appreciated for both function and form. Such is the mastery of the architect, able to create an unassuming beauty that only attention to detail can shine light on. The Macallan Amber, from the 1824 Series, strikes a resemblance in its polite and humble demeanor with its charming floral and citrus notes. But it is this same attention to detail that will make you truly appreciate the sophistication of Amber and its medley of vanilla, raisin and toffee apple notes.

The Bottle: Sienna

For: The Fashion Visionary

All great Scotch whiskies tell a story, but it takes an exceptional one to carry through with its message during the tasting experience. Ever persistent, the Sienna embodies a gentle determination to deliver its message much like a couturier and the nuanced themes present throughout a season’s collection. In this case, subtle vanilla notes delicately make an entrance before giving way to stronger notes of citrus, oak and chocolate truffles.

 

The Bottle: Edition No. 2

For: The Culinary Trailblazer

A marriage of talent between The Macallan’s master whisky maker, Bob Dalgarno, and the three Roca brothers, co-founders of El Cellar de Can Roca (twice named the best restaurant in the world), Edition No. 2 offers a stunning mélange of traits due undoubtedly to its use of seven types of top notch oak casks from four different bodegas. It’s a recipe for excellence that, given its masterful collaborators, only a culinary trailblazer can truly appreciate.

 

The Bottle: Rare Cask

For: The Mighty CEO

Those who make it to the top are often few and far between, outliers that have risen above the rest and reached the pinnacle of success. Similar to the power CEO, Macallan’s Rare Cask represents the extraordinary few — the very best. The epitome of craftsmanship and exclusivity, Rare Cask contains single malt Scotch whisky made from casks that comprise less than one percent of those maturing at the distillery due to their high quality. With bold, unapologetic notes of oak and spice dominating the palate, this is the only bottle fitting for those at the top.
