The Macallan Edition No.3 is the latest release in this innovative annual Series. Like preceding releases, Edition No.3 is an exploration into Macallaqn's approach to whisky making, exposing the detail of its creation, and offering true transparency.


To make Edition No.3, Master Perfumer Roja Dove was called upon to provide his remarkable sensory knowledge and experience to describe distinctive aromas in particular oak casks. When we experience and enjoy whisky, flavour and aroma are intimately entwined. The power of aroma is unquestionable and it is this power which makes the approach to Edition No.3 truly mesmerizing.


Roja brought his skill to the distillery, nosing a range of whisky samples and providing his thoughts and interpretation of the character and aromas he encountered. Subsequently Master Whisky Maker, Bob Dalgarno utilised Roja’s articulation of aromas to select dominant notes to help shape the final character of Edition No.3. Drawn from a combination of European and American oak casks, Edition No.3 presents a sweet and fruity character. It balances a heavier base reflective of The Macallan, with citrus, vanilla, florals and fresh cut oak.

Taste Rating Guide

1 - Light, good for beginners - an aperitif on a summers day, i.e. Glengoyne, Auchentoshan

2 - Also good for beginners but with more depth and body - a little stronger than 1, ie. Glenmorangie, Speyburn

3 - A dram for everyone, a little more complex so the palate requires a little more experience, i.e. Cragganmore, Macallan

4 - A stronger spirit, a big whisky with lots of character and body, excellent after dinner, i.e. Lagavulin, Laphroaig
