Limited Edition: The Macallan Release Edition No. 2 Malt Whiskey – The Macallan has released its latest limited edition, bringing together seven cask types from four different bodegas. The release is titled Edition No. 2. Discover this single malt whiskey from Scotland.
The masters behind this collaboration are Bob Dalgarno, The Macallan’s master whiskey maker and the Roca brothers, co-founders of El Celler de Can Roca, twice voted the best restaurant in the world.
The whiskey is a blend from whiskeys rested in seven different cask types from four Spanish bodegas: Vasyma, Diego Martin, Jose Miguel Martin and Tevasa.The European oak Tevasa casks were selected by Bob Dalgarno to define and carry the shape of Edition No. 2. Diego Martin American and European oak casks were selected by Joan Roca, European oak Jose Miguel Martin casks were chosen by Josep Roca, and finally, American oak Vasyma butts and puncheons were chosen by pastry chef Jordi Roca.
Bob Dalgarno, The Macallan’s master whiskey maker, says: “By collaborating with the Roca brothers we have combined our knowledge of whiskey making with their creative culinary expertise. The result – a single malt that challenges expectations.
“The driving force behind the Edition Series is the freedom we have to explore different and distinctive casks, some that might not typically be used in other Macallan whiskeys. With wood at the very heart of this series, we very much enjoyed the opportunity to delve into each individual cask, discovering the style and the special influence it can impart on the resulting whiskey. The harmony and balance of Edition No. 2 reflects not only the hand selected casks but the relationship that we have been developing with Joan, Josep and Jordi over the last few years – it is a powerful collaboration and one that I have loved being a part of.”
Josep Roca, sommelier, El Celler de Can Roca, says: “Our shared values and passions with The Macallan are taken a step further with our Edition No. 2 collaboration. Working with Bob to identity casks which reflect each of us personally was truly a unique and magical experience. We are really proud of this partnership and the exceptional whiskey created as a result.”
The Macallan estate lies in an area of great natural beauty; its scale and diversity is unique among distilleries and is managed in harmony with the beautiful landscape.
