  • Excerpt: I like it that Macallan would collaborate with chefs and starred restaurants. That’s good, worthy content (as long as the chefs have something to say and enjoy their whisky).

  • Excerpt: This was definitely different than the Edition 1. It was relieving to see that astringent plastic note replaced with more sherry and the introduction of a little cocoa.

  • Intro:

    This is the second edition released by Macallan under the Edition line of expressions.

  • Nose:

    Rich sherry, honey, fresh baked bread. Syrupy figs, cherry, stewed fruits. Super jammy. Lots of maple and brown sugar.

  • Taste:

    Lots of pepper, sweet sherry notes. Lots of cocoa and vanilla bean as well. Rich syrupy strawberry, raspberry, stewed figs and a really nice tobacco undertone.

  • Finish:

    Short to medium, not a lot of heat. Oak, subtle pepper and a really nice sherry exit. The vanilla bean is especially notable, followed by lots of stewed fruits.

  • Overall:

    This was definitely different than the Edition 1. It was relieving to see that astringent plastic note replaced with more sherry and the introduction of a little cocoa.

  • Score:

    6
