The single malt Scotch The Macallan has launched The Macallan Edition No. 2, created in collaboration with master whisky maker Bob Dalgarno and the three Roca brothers, co-founders of El Cellar de Can Roca, twice named best restauarant in the world. The limited edition release unlocks the workings of the whisky-making process and gives consumers the chance to “explore how the whisky was created” through cask crafting, oak provenance, seasoning and size.
The distinctive and dynamic character of The Macallan Edition No.2 has been shaped not only by the use of seven exceptional oak cask types from four different bodegas but by the creative spirit of each of the four collaborators; combining flavors to reflect each of their distinctive personalities in the resulting whisky. Drawn from European and American oak casks, this limited edition is a characterful single malt that showcases our extraordinary commitment to sourcing and selecting only the very best oak casks for The Macallan.
The Macallan Edition No. 2 whisky features seven whiskies hailing from Vasyma, Diego Martin, Jose Miguel Martin and Tevasa bodegas, handpicked by the collaborators to represent different aspects of their personality. Bottled at 48.2% abv, Edition No. 2 is said to have a “warm, spicy and complex character” with key notes of apple, oranges, toffee, dried fruit and vanilla.
