I have been very blessed to have attended a few memorable Macallan events over the past two years. The ultimate experience was definitely The Macallan Rare Cask launch at Aziamendi 88 – https://timchew.net/2015/11/11/the-macallan-masters-series-dinner-the-macallan-rare-cask-launch/
And the second being the dinner at Ruyi & Lyn – https://timchew.net/2016/01/31/macallan-rare-cask-launch-at-ruyi-lyn/

The Macallan once again brings one of their signature events to our shores with their “Toast The Macallan” exhibition, masterclass and cocktail happening at the end of this month.
Toast The Macallan lands on our shores for the very first time, featuring a pop-up exhibition-styled event that will be taking place at the Ritz-Carlton Kuala Lumpur, from the 26 September to the 1 October 2016.
The event is a global circuit created by The Macallan that promises a unique experience for guests unlike any other. Toast The Macallan is an experiential stage where guests not only learn about the whisky and brand thru a lively and entertaining whisky tasting session, but also get to savour the range of The Macallan whisky including The Macallan’s newest series dubbed the Trilogy, which consists of, The Macallan Fine Oak 12 Years Old, The Macallan Sherry Oak 12 Years Old and its latest expression The Macallan Double Cask 12 Years Old.
“The Macallan has been the leading brand in the single malt category and we are very excited to introduce our newest range, The Macallan Trilogy. This platform would allow consumers to experience what The Macallan really stands for and why our whiskies are exceptional in its class” explains Chief Representative of Edrington Malaysia, Mr Edwin Yeo.
This prestigious experience will be held over six (6) consecutive days at the Ritz-Carlton Kuala Lumpur and will be hosted by The Macallan Brand Trainer, Keith Nair and Brand Advocate, Randall Tan.
So how can you attend this event?
This ticketed event is priced at a very affordable RM50 nett per person, which includes a whisky tasting flight of the brand’s range of signature single malts, entry passes to the exhibition area of The Macallan range display and The Macallan lounge where you get to enjoy some custom-made cocktails. Do keep in mind that this is not a “yum seng” event where the objective is to drink till you’re happy, but rather a more sophisticated whisky tasting masterclass where you savour each sip of the different variants, and enjoy some cocktails in the lounge.
