The Macallan Edition No.4

The Macallan Edition No.4 Bottling Note

The fourth release in the Edition Series, a range of whiskies that focuses on The Macallan’s commitment to wood, the Edition No. 4 was aged in a combination of seven different cask types. These include (deep breath guys); European/American Oak refill butts, European/American Oak refill hogsheads, American Oak first fill Vasyma hogsheads, European Oak first fill Diego Martin Rosado butts, European Oak first fill Jose Y Miguel Martin butts, European Oak first fill Tevasa butts/puncheons and European Oak first fill Tevasa hogsheads.

While the previous three editions had attempted to demonstrate the influence each cask has on taste and aroma, master distiller Nick Savage developed Edition No. 4 to reveal the 'structure of the whisky'. The inspiration was the construction of the stylish £140m distillery.

Please note: This bottle comes without a presentation box.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Rich nutmeg, floral honey and orange zest are present initially, before a little red berry note and toasted oak emerge.

Palate: Toffee apples, sweet oak and clove lead, with a helping of vanilla and Seville marmalade underneath.

Finish: The finish lasts for an age and carries a smattering of wood spice.

Macallan Edition No.4 Reviews


On the nose it was a bit underwhelming, but then.... on the palate it is just wonderful sherry. Can't believe I missed buying a bottle. Bought a sample and I cherish it.

I have had many Macallan’s over the years and this Edition 4 ranks with the best of them. Highly recommended.

Excellent, got a bit of sandalwood among the honey and nutmeg. So smooth, perfect and a long spicy finish. Wow!

edition 3 much tastier!

Very nice, but does not compare to the edition 3, which is amazing. Edition 2 also very nice, more complex...

3 out of 5..

I have tried the edition 2, 3 and 4. I would say the edition 3 was amazing, 2 very nice. Quite complex, edition flavour better with a touch of water. Tasted very similar to the Macallan double cask
