The Macallan Edition No. 2
The Macallan // Highlands, Scotland
The Edition Series from The Macallan consists of limited edition blends of the distillery's malt whisky that have been matured in variety of different types of casks. This expression, the second release in the series, is the result of the collaboration between Master Distiller Bob Dalgarno, and the Roca Brothers - Joseph, Joan, and Jordi - owners of the El Cellar de la Roca restaurant. Together, they selected seven casks sourced from 4 different cooperages in Spain, for the whisky to mature in prior to blending. This is bottled at 48.2% ABV.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
Cask TypeTevasa European Oak, Diego Martin American & European Oak, Jose Miguel Martin European Oak, and Vasyma American oak
"Find honey and sultanas on the nose, with dried fruits, and an overall a huge sherry influence in the form of walnuts and prunes. The palate starts off drier, showcasing oak, but opens up to reveal honey, toffee, and dark red fruits, and continues to get richer over time. The finish is sweet, short, and without burn, showcasing more sherry-tinged red fruits along with chocolate and marzipan. A Scotch for sherry heads."
