Second to none.

The Macallan was founded in 1824 by Alexander Reid, a barley farmer and school teacher. And The Macallan has been schooling other Whiskies ever since. Their innovations and achievements are far too numerous to list here—including setting the record price ever paid at auction for a single bottle of Scotch. They produce a wide and deep range of single-malt Whiskies and every single one of them is as good as gold.

Speaking of quality, have you tried the Macallan Edition No.2? The Edition series consists of limited edition bottles, which have been matured in a variety of casks. The bottle at hand is the second expression in the series and originates from a creative collaboration between Macallan and the restaurant El Celler de Can Roca, twice voted the best restaurant in the world. Seeing that many consider Macallan the best Whisky in the world, this just might be a match made in heaven.

Bob Dalgarno, Macallan’s Master Whisky Maker and the three Roca brothers have joined forces to combine their intricate knowledge on flavours and aromas in a single Spirit. Each of them handpicked a cask from different bodegas in Spain, for the Whisky to mature prior to blending. The result is a complex combination of flavours that reflects each of their distinctive personalities, but at the same time amazes with its incredible balance and harmony. This Whisky might be no. 2 in the series, but when it comes to quality and character – it’s second to none.

Ratings & Reviews
Bernardo
Bernardo,
Unfortunately this bottle was neither smooth, nor tasteful. People at my parties always enjoy a new bottle of Macallan, but this bottle was awful, burning everyone's throats. Maybe it was the bottle? Other people seem to like it as per the reviews here, but neither i, nor anyone that i know that tasted it can recommend it. it was undrinkable.

Eduardo,
Nice and complex, really enjoyable. Chocolate, vanilla, orange zest and spices come to the nose. Rich palate and oak with a long lasting end

Phil,
A very fine Macallan. If you take the 12 year and take away some bite and smooth out the edges, you get the No. 2. It comes packed with flavor but doesn't have the bite of the 12 year.

Marc,
Good, high quality scotch, with nice flavors. Smooth, but not as rich or similar in profile to traditional Macallans

Jonathan
Jonathan,
Not a "typical" Scotch but loaded with flavor. Simultaneously spicy and floral. Strong nose and a smooth, hot finish. Prefer sipping in winter. Can't wait to see their 4th Edition.

Very smooth. The kind of scotch you want to drink when eating pork, deer, or duck.

Very smooth, similar to the Macallan 12 year with more flavor. Would recommend again!

Very smooth straight. The top notes of ginger and toffee make it so appealing.

Adam,
A bottle with a lot of complexity but is still remarkably smooth. A few drops of water can go a long way to opening up hidden flavors.

Mike,
My usual is Macallan 12 yo. I took a chance on the Edition No. 2, knowing the price is double the 12 and I can get 15 yo for $100.00. I must say that it was worth it! Very smooth and now one of my favorites!

Robert,
Almost like a "Best of Macallan" bottle. Smooth but forward secondary vanilla and oak flavors, with a touch of smoke and citrus at the end.

I am enjoying my bottle. It is a bit sweeter than anticipated though. I will continue to randomly enjoy a finger at a time, but it wont be my daily drink.
