Macallan Edition No.3 (70cl, 48.3%)

Highly collectable No.3 Edition from the masters at Macallan. 

A unique selection of oak cask styles are combined to yield a limited edition expression each year. Borne of two art forms, Edition No. 3 unites the worlds of whisky and aroma to reveal the complexities of single malt character and the power of the senses in creating and experiencing The Macallan. 

Released in 2017, this is the third annual bottling in the Edition series, this time a collaboration between Bob Dalgarno and Master Perfumer, Roja Dove.

The liquid has been matured in the following types of cask: 1st fill Hudosa Butt, 2nd fill Butt, 1st fill American Tevasa butts and puncheons, 1st fill European Tevasa hogsheads, 1st fill Bourbon hogsheads and barrels. 

It may be hard to imagine today, but for much of the 20th century, Macallan was primarily a constituent malt in blends. It was not until the 1980s downturn in the market that the distillery decided to focus on its single malt brand. Fortuitously, this coincided with the crest of a wave of enthusiasm for the high quality releases that the distillery had licensed to Campbell, Hope & King and Gordon & MacPhail in the 1960s and 1970s. These remain some of the most collectible on the market. While global single malt sales volume is still lead by Speyside neighbours, Glenfiddich and Glenlivet, Macallan is easily the most sought after. So much so in fact, that they had to open a brand new distillery in 2018, a subterranean architectural masterpiece within the Easter Elchies estate, boasting 36 copper pot stills.
