Whisky Maker The Macallan Partners with Perfumer Roja Dove
LL - Smell is an intricate part of enjoying your whisky and there is no one better to prove this than revered single malt manufacturer– The Macallan. The marquee has been churning out some of the best scotch known to the world and in doing so is all set to introduce a new variant: The Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky – Edition No.3.
For perfecting its new whisky, the brand has partnered with none other than master perfumer and famed historian – Roja Dove. In doing his bit, Dove sample-smelled a variety of casks before putting down his notes into detail. His research on various aromas was then worked upon by whiskey expert – Bob Dalgarno who roiled out the final product i.e. The Macallan Edition No.3. For curious souls, the new Macallan whisky comes with whiffs of vanilla, oak, bourbon, floral notes, green apple, and fruit cake, with its palate being ingrained with more fruit cake, apricot, pear, and green apple.
While Edition No.1 in the series had combined eight different casks of both European and American creation, the second edition was created through collaboration with the three Roca brothers behind El Cellar de Can Roca. However, it’s the latest version that lays most emphasis on aroma, that truly is of essence to scotch whiskey. Around 250,000 bottles of the Macallan Edition No.3 are manufactured, each of which will retail for approximately $95.
