This limited edition is the fifth release in The Macallan's 'Edition' series of annual releases. Inspired by the natural colour of The Macallan's whisky, the renowned Pantone Color Institute have created a unique and complex shade of purple especially for this release. Made with a vatting of 525 American oak casks from three distinguished bodegas, each one primarily chosen for its colour and matched to their closest Pantone colour references, this expression has been bottled at a strength of 48.5% abv, at natural colour – naturally.
The nose has sweet vanilla toffee and nutmeg with oak, ginger, lemon basil and pear. The palate brings sweet caramel, poached peach and ripe pear notes, before spicy nutmeg and ginger emerge in the long finish.
