The Macallan Edition No. 5
The Macallan Edition No. 5 is the fifth in a series of annual limited releases, created to reveal the master behind the perfect cask selection that has inspired all Macallan single malt whiskies since 1824. Each colour, from the lightest oak to the deepest mahogany, across The Macallan portfolio is naturally derived from the interaction of the whisky with the oak casks in which it is matured. The process is managed carefully by our highly skilled whisky team, who select different casks to craft both the flavour and colour for each expression.
