Macallan Edition No.2 ( 48.2%) Tasting Note
Nose: Mocha, brown sugar, a spark of ginger and some oak-y warmth.
Palate: Notes of Sherried raisins and dried citrus peels develop, a hint of vegetal oak. Still a little chocolate-y.
Finish: Spiced fruit cake and lemon peels.
Macallan Edition No.3 ( 48.3%) Tasting Note
Nose: Reminiscent of a fine fragrance, the nose leads with vanilla ice cream, fresh cut oak and delicate florals. Orange oil provides subtle grandeur while ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg flit in and out in various guises. Vanilla imparts sweetness, leading citrus fruits forward then allowing chocolate to show. Burnished oak delivers a soft ending.
Palate: Sweet fruit, vanilla and rich fruit cake with suggestions of apricot, pear and crisp green apple. Hints of ginger and cinnamon are balanced with a light resinous oak finale.
Finish: Long, sweet and fruity, leaving a lasting impression on the senses.
Macallan Edition No.4 ( 48.4%) Tasting Note
Nose: Rich nutmeg, floral honey and orange zest are present initially, before a little red berry note and toasted oak emerge.
Palate: Toffee apples, sweet oak and clove lead, with a helping of vanilla and Seville marmalade underneath.
Finish: The finish lasts for an age and carries a smattering of wood spice.
Macallan Edition No.5 (48.5%) Tasting Note
Nose: Toffee apple, poached pair, savoury hints of sage. Flashes of clean citrus notes.
Palate: Nuttier on the palate, with walnut and macadamia nut appearing as it opens. Continues on to orchard fruits, honeycomb and a kick of oaky black pepper.
Finish: Butterscotch, cedar and lemon.
Macallan Edition No.6 ( 48.6%) Tasting Note
Nose: Caramelised dates, latte topped with a dusting of cinnamon and nutmeg, a hint of cedar.
Palate: More toffee and dried fruit, now with fresh orange and pear in support. A hint of oaty biscuit and chocolate in there too.
Finish: Chocolate builds on the finish, alongside citrus, apricot and allspice.

The second release from the Macallan Edition series is a collaboration between Master Whisky Maker Bob Dalgarno and the three brothers behind El Celler de Can Roca (named Best Restaurant in the World twice by Restaurant magazine). This single malt was drawn from a combination of European and American oak casks.
The third release in The Macallan’s wood-focused Edition series saw master perfumer Roja Dove and master whisky maker Bob Dalgarno create a whisky using their very particular sets of skills. Dove pinned down the flavour profile for Edition No. 3 by using the same formula he would for a perfume: pinpointing complementary aromas, and balancing these with a “counterpoint” note. The resulting liquid is a combination of six American and European oak casks, with deliciously sweet, floral notes up front.
The fourth release in the Edition Series, a range of whiskies that focuses on The Macallan’s commitment to wood, the Edition No. 4 was aged in a combination of seven different cask types. These include (deep breath guys); European/American Oak refill butts, European/American Oak refill hogsheads, American Oak first fill Vasyma hogsheads, European Oak first fill Diego Martin Rosado butts, European Oak first fill Jose Y Miguel Martin butts, European Oak first fill Tevasa butts/puncheons and European Oak first fill Tevasa hogsheads.
While the previous three editions had attempted to demonstrate the influence each cask has on taste and aroma, master distiller Nick Savage developed Edition No. 4 to reveal the ‘structure of the whisky’. The inspiration was the construction of the stylish £ 140m distillery.
The Macallan Edition series continues with the 5th release, and this one is all about the natural colour of the whisky! Celebrating the natural colour of the whisky, imparted by its time maturing in oak casks, Macallan teamed up with Pantone to create a rather fetching shade of purple which features on the label and presentation box. Very snazzy stuff.
It’s the sixth – and final – release in The Macallan Edition series! Macallan whisky maker Steven Bremner took inspiration from the distillery’s scenic landscape, particularly the River Spey, to create this expression. American and European oak casks were chosen for Edition No.6, and they have imparted a wealth of thick toffee, spicy ginger and fresh fruit notes.
