This 2018 release Macallan Edition No.4 Whisky is the latest member of the world-famous Speyside distillery’s ‘Editions’ Series. It was made to showcase The Macallan’s trademark rich and heavy style, while celebrating a range of top quality oak casks at the same time. European & American Oak casks and butts are all on display here in this complex yet well balanced dram.
Honeyed apples, citrus zest, nutmeg and bitter dark chocolate are all apparent on the nose and they make way for dark fruits, charred oak and sweet vanilla on the palate. It’s an incredibly well crafted dram that sums up what it means to be a Macallan whisky and displays all of the knowledge and expertise of those working at the distillery. An absolute delight.
