Chinese New Year 2020 is right around the corner! The Year Of The Rat promises a prosperous year ahead for everyone. During the celebration, we tend to always refer to Zodiacs to determine fortune, marriage, career and health or even “Fan Tai Sui”(犯太岁), where Zodiacs which clash with Tai Sui this year will experience ups and downs from various elements.
The Chinese Zodiacs consist of 12 animals: Rat (鼠 shǔ), Ox (牛 niú), Tiger (虎 hǔ), Rabbit (兔 tù) , Dragon (龙 lóng), Snake (蛇 shé), Horse (马 mǎ), Goat (羊 yang), Monkey (猴 hóu), Rooster (鸡 jī), Dog (狗 gǒu), Pig (猪 zhū). Although similarities with the horoscope signs, a person’s Zodiac is not determined by the dates they are born in. Instead, the Zodiacs are categorised by year.
2020 is the year of the Metal Rat. The element “Metal” symbolises strength, determination and resolution. The symbolism suggests that the year ahead will be full of growing opportunities and achievements for everyone.

The first Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon was crafted with grapes from the 1936 vintage by iconic Winemaker Andre Tchelistcheff, who tasted the wine in barrel and insisted on giving it an independent bottling. Today this wine is widely considered the standard bearer of fine Rutherford Cabernet, with deep fruit character, silky tannins and impressive aging ability.

Far less than 1% of those casks maturing at the distillery have been identified as fitting to bestow the Rare Cask name. With rarity at its core, this is a whisky crafted from casks so rare they will never again be used in any Macallan whisky. Combining Spanish and American sherry seasoned oak casks, a high proportion of them first fill, gives rise to an exquisite whisky with a splendidly rich hue, and an unmistakably woody whisky. Soft notes of opulent vanilla and raisin on the nose, give way to apple, lemon, and orange. Balanced by a spicy quartet of root ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. Oak resonates, timeless, polished and rich. Vanilla and chocolate lead the finale along with a light citrus zest. The finish is full, warming and woody.
