The Macallan Edition No.3 70cl 48.3%
This is number 3 of 4 in Macallan's wood-focused Edition series. This saw master perfumer Roja Dove and master whisky maker Bob Dalgarno create a whisky using their very particular sets of skills.
This extraordinary collaboration sees the use of six American and European oak casks to create this wonderful whisky. Dove pinned down the flavour profile for Edition 3, as he would with a fine perfume, by balancing aromas with counterpoint notes.
