The sixth and final release in the The Macallan Edition series, Macallan Edition No 6 takes its inspiration from the natural wonders of the legendary River Spey and The Macallan Estate, where each and every cask of The Macallan is matured before being hand-selected for use by our expert whisky makers.
All of the five distinct casks types used to create Macallan Edition No 6 have been hand-picked by The Macallan Whisky Maker Steven Bremner. He drew inspiration from unique stories related to the river and surrounding landscape. The American and European oak casks have been selected to create a flavour profile that will deliver a multifaceted experience; from the appealing rich brass natural colour, to the layers of aroma, followed by the deep and rewarding flavour.
Nose: deep toffee notes and caramelized nuts alongside Ovaltine and Weetabix. Raisins and a little mocha. Gingerbread. There’s some active, spicy oak behind this, showing baking spices like cinnamon and ginger. Although there’s some plummy sweetness, I’m always missing red fruits in whiskies like this, which go nuts (ha) on things like caramel and chocolate.
Mouth: more caramel coated nuts (almonds, hazelnuts) with a peppery warmth. Cinnamon pastry and chocolate. Soaked toasted oats. Sticky toffee pudding. Some oranges and plums in the background, but still dominated by hints of cocoa and some roasted coffee beans.
Finish: medium, with drying spice (nutmeg), some leafy notes and cocoa.
