Painter Haryanto Gu­nawan held a solo ex­hi­bi­tion en­ti­tled “Spir­its [e]mo­tions” at Cipu­tra Art­preneur in Jakarta. The ex­hi­bi­tion was of­fi­ci­ated by Min­is­ter of In­dus­try Mr Air­langga Har­tarto, hosted by Mr Deddy Kusuma and Ms Rina Cipu­tra, and cu­rated by Mr Eddy Soetriy­ono, Mr Amin­udin TH Sire­gar, and Ms Sally Tex­i­ana.

Atrip to the lounge would be a gift in it­self, but if you’re look­ing to present a sin­gu­lar stun­ning bot­tle as an un­for­get­table gift, we rec­om­mend some­thing ex­trav­a­gant that will wow even the most dis­crim­i­nat­ing con­nois­seur, or make a truly spe­cial ad­di­tion to your per­sonal col­lec­tion. En­ter The Ma­callan M. Known as the most lux­u­ri­ous whisky in the world, this mag­nif­i­cent spirit sits at the pin­na­cle of The Ma­callan range of ul­tra­premium lux­ury sin­gle-malt whiskies known as the Ma­callan 1824 Masters Se­ries.

M is the iconic re­sult of an un­prece­dented col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween three masters of their crafts—cre­ative di­rec­tor and leg­endary designer Fa­bien Baron, the world’s best crys­tal maker Lalique, and, of course, The Ma­callan.

Fash­ioned in the high­est-grade crys­tal, each hand­crafted M de­canter unites proven tra­di­tion with originality, draw­ing on more than 150 years of Lalique mas­tery and ded­i­ca­tion in its re­fine­ment and flaw­less clar­ity. Its six strik­ing facets are Baron’s homage to The Ma­callan’s Six Pil­lars.

Draw­ing on some of the rich­est and rarest casks maturing at the dis­tillery, this com­plex and in­tense whisky in­cludes Ma­callan dis­tilled in 1940. With a rich rose­wood colour de­rived from the sherry-sea­soned Span­ish oak casks, M de­liv­ers a com­plex­ity and sump­tu­ous in­ten­sity rarely ex­pe­ri­enced in a sin­gle malt.

When you lift the glass to your nose, you will sense dried fruits ripen then soften. Vanilla ac­com­pa­nies green ap­ple hand in hand, while gin­ger, nut­meg, and cin­na­mon cre­ate an en­sem­ble in the back­ground with strong notes of pol­ished oak and a depth of resinous, juicy or­anges. The palate opens rich in wood spices, slowly show­ing all their vis­cos­ity. Woodsmoke flits in and out. Com­plex lay­ers of wood­i­ness, spici­ness, dark fruiti­ness, even a lit­tle candy sweet­ness dance across your tongue.

Long af­ter you’ve emp­tied your glass, the long, vel­vety fin­ish full of dried dark fruit like raisins and sul­tanas lingers on, me­an­der­ing to a long and full fin­ish. Avail­able at wine and spir­its out­lets in Jakarta.
