Macallan Edition 1
Macallan Edition 1 is the debut expression in the Edition Series. It celebrates The Macallan’s unparalleled oak cask management policy that oversees the entire process from wood sourcing to finished, seasoned, cask. Showcasing the influence of The Macallan’s exceptional oak casks in the flavour of the whisky, the result is a bold single malt drawn from eight of the finest European and American oak cask styles and sizes. Macallan Edition Sherry-seasoned and aged to perfection before being combined to create this rich and multidimensional whisky, the character of each cask style lives within the whisky itself.
Bottled at 48%, Macallan Edition No. 1 Made from a mix of sherry and bourbon oak-matured whisky, the luxurious dram is equal parts sweet and spicy, with hints of coffee beans, cocoa and dried fruit. Nectarean in every regard.
