THE MACALLAN Edition No.3 .. A unique selection of oak cask styles are combined to yield a new limited edition expression each year. Like preceding releases, Edition No.3 is an exploration into our approach to whisky making, exposing the detail of its creation, and offering true transparency.
Colour – Barley gold.
Nose – vanilla ice cream, fresh cut oak and delicate florals. Orange oil provides subtle grandeur while ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg flit in and out. Vanilla imparts sweetness with citrus fruits at the fore before allowing chocolate to come through.
Palate – Sweet fruit, vanilla and rich fruit cake with hints of apricot, pear and crisp green apple. Ginger and cinnamon are balanced with a light resinous oak finale.
Finish – Long, sweet and fruity, leaving a lasting impression on the senses.
