Product details

Another special collaboration from Macallan's Master Whisky Maker Bob Dalgarno, this time with renowned British perfumer Roja Dove. The Limited Edition Series is an exploration into Macallan's approach in whisky creation through transparency and experimentation. Dove brought his organoleptic expertise to the distillery to pinpoint a host of specific aromas within the Macallan's vast stocks. This then helped inform a selection of casks by Bob Dalgarno exhibiting those specific aromatics. The Limited Edition No. 3 is drawn from American and European oak barrels which highlight sweet and fruity side of Macallan balancing out the heavy spirit with fresh notes of citrus, vanilla, and freshly felled oak.

Color: Barley Gold

Nose: Reminiscent of a fine fragrance with vanilla ice cream, fresh cut oak and delicate florals. Orange oil provides subtle grandeur while ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg flit in and out. Vanilla imparts sweetness with citrus fruits at the fore before allowing chocolate to come through. Burnished oak delivers a soft ending.

Palate: Sweet fruit, vanilla and rich fruit cake with hints of apricot, pear and crisp green apple. Ginger and cinnamon are balanced with a light resinous oak finale.

Finish: Long, sweet and fruity, leaving a lasting impression on the senses.
