the Macallan Edition No 5!

Macallan Edition 5

The first sign of the much anticipated Edition No 5 from the Macallan has turned up. We expect this may have turned up earlier if it hadn’t been for the suspended operations due to the government shutdown.

The Macallan describes the Edition No 5:

“This limited edition whisky celebrates the Macallan’s spectrum of natural colour which has inspired the world-renowned pantone color institute to create a unique and exquisitely complex shade”

I am also relieved to see the ABV-tenth actually is 5, as the number of the Edition, making the ABV 48.5%. No official release date is yet available but we’re expecting it to follow its predecessors being released around August.
