Twin calibre.

by Andrew MacGregor

The Macallan: “Bentley” - 90s

A collaboration between Speyside whisky The Macallan and Bentley sounds like a drink-driving ban waiting to happen. Yet in the hands of director Bugsy Steel, it's a vivid, fleet-footed look at the two brands in tandem.

Both are well-served throughout by Steel and DP David Foulkes, yet the single malt's blend of Scottish countryside, ornate cask rooms, and time-honoured methods perhaps edges it. Not that luxury petrolheads will feel hard done by.

Despite their shared kudos, the brand admit they are "but a blink of an eye in nature's great story." Thus, they promise to deliver sustainability as well as quality - perhaps a joint effort will succeed where others have failed.
