Macallan Edition No. 3 is the latest release in the annual series special limited releases. This special bottling comes as a collaboration between the Macallan Master Distiller Bob Dalgarno and the world renowned Master Perfumer Roja Dove. Roja Dove is known as the nose in the business, so it was no surprise that he would at sometime be used by Macallan to release this special blend.
Name: Macallan Edition No. 3
ABV: 48.3 %
Color: Nice Amber Gold Mix
Nose: Sherry and crisp apples, toffee, vanilla and fresh cut oak. Its a very pleasant aroma, it does not overpower and requires no drops of water even though the proof is a bit higher than average.
Palate: Fruit cake, orange zest, green apples, vanilla, butterscotch and ice cream. The nose to me is not as tasty as the palate. The nose was too soft and quite floral almost, but the palate is dark, rich and has many complexities within complexities. Very nice balance between the fruits and the creaminess. Soft warm mouth feel, no burn.
Finish: Long and spicy with caramel, honey, green apples and a hint of florals.
