Flavour profile as deep as Loch Ness.

Founded in 1824, The Macallan is one of the Big 3 distilleries 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 wide and deep range of world-class Single Malt Whiskies that have a huge following.

The good folks at The Macallan just keep on tinkering in the rick-houses. They continually come up with new twists and tweaks to wring out special flavour profiles and special editions. The latest range in their portfolio is the Edition Series, and The Macallan No. 1 is the debut dram for this new line.

The Macallan was historically famous for their use of Sherry cask, and No. 1 fits the category. But this special edition uses 8 different types of Sherry casks to develop a richer, more balanced profile. And to keep things real, they have bottled it up at 48% ABV, a few lovely points higher than their core Whisky so every drop pops with added flavour.

Dog Dogson's
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most single malts are matured longer).

Smooth and refined.
The best drink I ever had in life. Try the 18 years old for best taste with tonic water.
