Whisky fans around the world have been waiting for some time for this hotly anticipated Macallan Edition No.5 – the latest addition to the distillery’s hugely popular Editions Series. The series was created to showcase their dedication to top-notch wood management, a precise distilling process and high-level knowledge and expertise when it comes to knowing exactly what makes a fantastic dram.
Edition No.5 is described as ‘a homage to the diversity and complexity of natural colour’, and the distillery teamed up with the Pantone Color Institute to design the bottle. Pantone created an exclusive colour for the whisky, an intricate shade of purple. They stated: “As the rainbow’s most complex colour, purple naturally felt like the ideal shade to highlight the equally complex process involved in The Macallan’s whisky making.”
Matured exclusively in American Oak Casks, it brings sweet fruits, citrus zest, salted caramel, honey and vanilla to your nose and palate and these are all backed up by a compelling range of oak spices. As with most Macallan whiskies, it’s a thing of beauty (inside and out) that will deliver a tasting experience never to be forgotten.
