The 4th release in the Macallan Edition series... No. 4, is a testament to the distillery's weighty house spirit style and a tribute to the architectural marvel which is their new distillery. The whisky is bottled at 48.4%, and is crafted from a mix of American and European oak casks; 7 different types to be specific. It is the most heavily sherried whisky in the Macallan Edition series to date!

Andrew's Tasting Note

Nose: big syrupy sherry notes with dark chocolate, piles of dried dark fruits: raisins, dates, figs and prunes; bright orange and sweet spices; Panda brand licorice and building leather and tobacco.

Palate: a big, classic heavily sherried profile, but with balance; thick, round and smooth; loads of dark chocolate, Christmas cake and dried fruits; maple syrup, treacle toffee and soft musty-earthy-oaky tones; a touch of tobacco and leather too. 

Finish: medium-long and coating; more sherry, treacle, chocolate and dried fruits.

Comment: if you are looking for a sherry-bomb of a Macallan, then this will make you very happy; it is to my recollection the most heavily sherried of all 4 whiskies in the Edition series; the whisky isn't overcooked, but the use of a high proportion of first fill sherry, which gives it it's big sherried profile, also means there is a lack of the subtlety and nuance that I personally look for; don't get me wrong, this is a lovely whisky, I just prefer the elegance of Edition No.3.. 

Producer's Tasting Note

Nose: Bold and rounded honey with a sweet apple note. Orange zest follows a background of ginger and nutmeg. Robust, polished matured oak comes at the end in contrast to the subtle green wood and floral undertones.

Palate: Nutmeg with wood spices and green cloves open up immediately, with a calm following the intense beginnings, leaving a sweet and vanilla viscous mouth coating.

Finish: Fruity with oaky sweetness, long and lasting.

Producer Description

"Like preceding releases, transparency prevails in Edition No.4 as it continues to explore our approach to whisky making, showcasing the skills of our whisky makers and revealing the specific role of oak casks in the creation of the Macallan. With each cask bringing different dimensions and imparting its own influence, this single malt delivers surprising aromas and character. Crafted from a combination of European and American oak casks, Edition No.4 presents a zesty, vibrant and invigorating single malt of rounded honey, sweet toffee and citrus fruits. This is a distinctive whisky that pushes the boundaries of our innovation, reflecting the passion, traditions and craftsmanship that goes into the art of the perfect cask selection."
