The Macallan Whisky Maker’s Edition

The Macallan Whisky Maker's EditionThe Macallan Whisky Maker’s Edition Highland Single Malt Whisky

42.8% abv. Travel Retail Exclusive (1 L)

Opened on the occasion of of World Whisky Day, celebrating drams around the world on May 18th this year.

I purchased this duty free on a cruise ship coming back from Alaska, and also bought it without having a single taste.  But with the limited selection available, it was my choice since I have enjoyed the other Macallans I have tried. And if  by chance I did not enjoy it, I was sure that I would be able to find people to share it with.

WOW! I was not disappointed at all.

Rich autumn fruit aromas, almost rum raisin, clove, cinnamon and spice.

Soft and sherry spice on the palate, surprising white chocolate on the back palate; long lingering fruity finish.

A few drops of water really opened it up and brought out the creaminess on the palate, fruit and spice, and the toffee really comes through.

A very special dram and one I am going to really enjoy again.
