The Macallan Edition No. 6
The Macallan // Highlands, Scotland
The Macallan Edition No. 6 is the sixth and final edition in its Edition Series, each of which highlights a part of the whisky making process for the brand. This release celebrates the River Spey which runs across northeast Scotland and is known as one of the finest fly-fishing sites in Europe. The Macallan Estate sits upon its banks. For Edition No. 6, American and European sherry-seasoned casks were used for maturation with Whisky Maker Steven Bremner choosing five cask styles which were "inspired by the natural world that surrounds [the] distillery." Available globally as of September 2020.
