The Macallan Edition No.1 is the first release of what is going to be an annual limited edition from the Macallan Distillery. A special selection of oak casks will be handpicked to crafted into an Edition each year, and Edition No.1 was introduced in 2015.
Macallan defines their unique art of whisky making through an unusual spectrum of selected casks for Edition No.1. This distinctive high quality single malt is made from whiskies aged in eight different styles of European and American oak casks, and each cask was chosen by the Macallan Master Whisky Maker, Bob Dalgarno, with the idea to create a rich and complex whisky. Matured in 58% Butts, 23% Hogshead and 19% Puncheon casks, it delivers a palate that is light and soft and finishes rich and dark.
