Macallan Edition No.5

The Macallan Edition series continues with the 5th release, and this one is all about the natural colour of the whisky! Celebrating the natural colour of the whisky, imparted by its time maturing in oak casks, Macallan teamed up with Pantone to create a rather fetching shade of purple which features on the label and presentation box. Very snazzy stuff.

This bottle was part of a private collection - if you'd like more detailed photos just get in touch!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Toffee apple, poached pair, savoury hints of sage. Flashes of clean citrus notes.

Palate Nuttier on the palate, with walnut and macadamia nut appearing as it opens. Continues on to orchard fruits, honeycomb and a kick of oaky black pepper.

Finish Butterscotch, cedar and lemon.

Not one of my favourite whiskies.
Smooth but too peppery / spicy as I prefer sweeter.

Complex American oak expression
Really complex expression from Macallan. Builds on the taste of the 15 yo triple cask. Sweet citrus and ginger on the nose melting into a Sherried, vanilla caramel on the taste. Opens up into more depth of fruits with a bit of water. Lingering oak after taste. Being a limited release I think it will be quite sought after in years to come.

Wait for it....
A wonderful dram, rich and complex. Nose: Buttery toffee, orange notes, a hint of leather and chocolate. Mellow sherried notes. Palate: Sweet and rich, toffee and fruits... canned peaches and a bit of pear, and nuts. Are there some berries there? A bit of spice. Finish: Toffee and chocolate, nutty oak and light dried fruits. It really opens up with a bit of air in the bottle and becomes even better.
