About The Macallan Edition Series Set (No. 1 + No. 2 + No. 3)
Situated on a ridge above the banks of the River Spey, the Easter Elchies House has been the spiritual home of The Macallan
for over three centuries. In 1820, Alexander Reid began renting the home from Sir Lewis Grant of Grant. Reid was a farmer, and soon after he sowed the fields surrounding the home with barley, Reid established the first licensed distillery on the estate, which he named Macallan after an ancient church that had been destroyed by fire during the 15th century. In the winter — when there was little activity on the farm — Reid would ferment and distill his excess grains into whisky, which was often drunk straight from the still or sold to travelers passing through the town.
Macallan Edition No. 1 is the first release in a new annual limited released from the esteemed distillery. Macallan Edition No. 1 is made from whisky aged in eight different styles of European and American oak casks. Each cask was chosen by The Macallan Master Whisky Maker, Bob Dalgarno, with the idea to create a rich and complex whisky.
Macallan Edition No. 2 is the second release in a new annual limited released from the esteemed distillery. Edition No. 2 is a collaboration between the Macallan Master Whisky Maker, Bob Dalgarno, and the Roca brothers, whose restaurant El Celler de Can Roca has been named best restaurant in the world twice.
Macallan Edition No. 3 is the third release of The Macallan’s wood centric series. Production of this refined spirit was overseen by Roja Dove, Master Perfumer, and Bob Dalgarno, Macallan Whisky Maker. Dalgarno hand selected fewer than one percent of the casks maturing on the Macallan estate in order to craft this rare whisky. This Edition No. 3 is a harmonious composition of six American and European oak casks, showcasing ethereally sweet, floral notes in the fore, and base notes of vanilla, fruit, and oak.
It really doesn't get much better than this. This set of three epic Macallans are an artefact of Macallan's commitment to the art of whisky making.

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)
Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
