The Macallan Edition No. 4 is the latest release in this innovative annual series from The Macallan. Like preceding releases, Edition No. 4 continues the exploration into the distillery's approach to whisky making, and exposing the detail of its creation. Edition No. 4 is developed under guidance of Macallan Master Distiller, Nick Savage.
The Macallan Edition No. 4 exposes the structure of the whisky, drawing parallel on how The Macallan’s new distillery is constructed. This limited edition whisky has been shaped by the use of exceptional oak casks, which are the single greatest contributor to the outstanding quality, natural colors and distinctive aromas and avors of The Macallan.
Drawn from a combination of European and American oak Sherry casks, Edition No. 4 presents a zesty, vibrant and invigorative single malt with notes of honey, sweet toffee and citrus fruits.
Aroma: Bold and rounded honey with a sweet toffee apple note
Palate: Nutmeg with wood spices and green cloves open up immediately, leaving a sweet and vanilla viscous mouth coating
Finish: Fruity with oaky sweetness, long and lasting
As was true with the previous releases, this is an extremely limited edition and once its gone, its gone for good!
