Product DescriptionMacallan Edition No.3 750ml
The Macallan Edition No. 3 is the latest release in this innovative annual Series. Like preceding releases, Edition No. 3 is an exploration into Macallan's approach to whisky making, exposing the detail of its creation, and offering true transparency.
Inpsiration and innovation lie at the heart of the Macallan and nowhere is this more evident than with the Edition Series. To make Edition No.3, Master Perfumer Roja Dove was called on to provide his remarkable sensory knowledge and experience to describe distinctive aromas in particular oak casks.
When we experience and enjoy whisky, flavor and aroma are intimately entwined. The pwer of aroma is unquestionable and it is this power which makes the approach to Edition No. 3 truly mesmerizing. Roja brought his skill to the distillery, nosing a range of whisky samples and providing his thoughts and interpretation of the character and aromas he encountered. Master Whisky Maker, Bob Dalgarno utilised Roja's articulation of aromas to select dominant notes to help shape the final character of Edition No. 3. Drawn from a combination of European and American oak casks, Edition No. 3 presents a sweet and fruity character. It balances a heavier base reflective of The Macallan, with citrus, vanilla, florals and fresh cut oak.
With a natural color of barley gold, Edition No. 3 is a sensory journey of flavor and aroma intimately entwined. The nose is reminiscent of a fine fragrance, leading with vanilla, fresh cut oak and delicate florals. Orange oil provides subtle grandeur while ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg flit in an dout. Vanilla imparts sweetness, leading citrus fruits forward then allowing chocolate to show. Burnished oak delivers a soft ending. The palate is sweet citrus and vanilla while ginger and cinnamon are balanced with a light resinous oak finale. The finish is long, sweet and fruity.
