The Macallan Edition No. 4 is the latest limited release in the annual series. Like preceding releases, Edition No. 4 continues the exploration into Macallan's approach to whisky making, and exposing the detail of its creation. Edition No. 4 is developed under guidance of Master Distiller, Nick Savage, using several different types of casks made from both American and European oak. Bottled at 48.4%.
Nose: Bold and rounded honey with a sweet apple note. Orange zest follows a background of ginger and nutmeg. Robust, polished matured oak comes at the end in contrast to the subtle green wood and oral undertones.
Palate: Nutmeg with wood spices and green cloves open up immediately, with a calm following the intense beginnings, leaving a sweet and vanilla viscous mouth coating.
Finish: Fruity with oaky sweetness, long and lasting.
