Macallan Whisky Makers Edition
Macallan Whisky Makers Edition is a bottle for the serious whisky collector. Part of the 1825 Travel Retail series and currently discontinued.
This was created by Macallan’s distillery manager Bob Dalgarno. He made it from a mix of sherry and bourbon oak-matured whisky.
It’s interesting to see that Macallan never let us down with their travel retail offerings. While it will never be the cheapest single malt on offer in the airport, it’s almost a gold standard guarantee that you’re going to get what you want and what you have paid for. Macallan Whisky Makers Edition is definitely one of those.
Nose: Spicy and sweet. Some marmalade, cocoa and orange rind, chocolate, coffee beans and cinnamon spice.
Palate: Thick and luscious, big on juicy ripe fruits, date cake, cedar, sherried peels and fudge.
Finish: Long and spiced, Jaffa cakes.
