Macallan Edition No.3
70cl / 48.3% abv
This limited edition Speyside single malt is the result of a creative partnership between Bob Dalgarno of The Macallan and Master Perfumer Roja Dove. Guided by Dove's finely tuned olfactory receptors, Dalgarno selected the dominant notes that would shape the character of Edition No.3. The third in a series of annual releases, Edition No.3 has been drawn from a combination of European and American oak casks and bottled at 48.3% abv.
Nose: vanilla ice cream, oak and floral notes precede orange oil, ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg with citrus fruits and chocolate emerging – a fine fragrance!
Palate: vanilla and sweet fruit, apricot, pear and crisp apple with rich fruit cake and hints of ginger and cinnamon.
Finish: long, sweet and fruity.
