The final release of The Macallan "Edition" series celebrates the River Spey bordering The Macallan Estate.
Founded in 1824, The Macallan is one of the "Big 3" Single Malts in Scotland. Fortunately, they have achieved this scale without sacrificing quality. A change in UK labeling laws aced them out of their "Speyside" designation. But just because the British Parliament gerrymandered the "official" boundaries doesn’t mean Whisky-lovers have to pay any attention.
Their achievements are numerous — including setting the record price ever paid at auction for a single bottle of Scotch. They produce a very broad range of world-class Single Malt Whiskies that have a huge global following.
The Macallan launched their "Edition" series in 2015. Each release explored a single element that contributes to the Macallan remaining one of the most popular Single Malts in the world. For example, Edition 1 focused on wood management, Edition 2 on the special casks used, Edition 3 on the craft of Spirit-making, etc.
The Macallan Edition No. 6 is the last in the series and it focuses on the majestic River Spey that winds past the distillery and has defined a sought-after style of Single Malt for generations. The Macallan Whisky Maker Steven Bremner selected five distinct cask types to use in this release. And it is bottled at a very pleasing 48.6% ABV.

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in The Macallan Edition No. 6 Single Malt Scotch Whisky and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.
We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
