A lovely divertimento for your senses.

Ask any Scotch-head and they'll tell you The Macallan is as exquisite as they come. The distillery by the river Spey has been making Whiskies since 1824 and knows a thing or two about making great Spirits.

The Master Distiller Bob Dalgarno decided after two successful special editions so make it a hat-trick and called a Master Perfumer Roja Dove (Guerlain, Roja Perfumes). Mr. Dove is able to identify 800 scents while blindfolded and he approached finding the flavor profile the same way he does for a perfume: nailing complemental aromas and finding their counterpart to balance the scent.

Now, Edition No.3 doesn't focus on taste or legacy, but on aroma, which is why a perfume Wunderkind is a key element here. This bottle is an expression, a statement, and an incredibly interesting spirit. This wood-focused aromatic Whisky is a combination of six American and European casks, and it's incredibly sweet. Not unlike the first two editions, the Third has a clear mission and it absolutely delivers a luxurious experience for your nose and intense entertainment for your palate. Despite being focused on aroma, it's deep, complex and utterly enjoyable.

Scotch Whisky is almost never aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation, while many times ageing process and flavour finishing is concluded in various wine casks, such as sherry or port.

Ratings & Reviews
Benjamin
Benjamin,
This is an excellent offering with a very nice amount of smooth vanilla which really leads the way in both the aroma and the flavor. There is a nice touch of apple and apricot that come through, playing off of the vanilla to come across as a bit of a pie-like experience. The oak is present, but is more of undertone for me.

Arvind,
Oak, caramel, a touch of sweetness but dries out for a mid length slightly sharp finish. Its a great bottle of speyside. is it worth $100? not sure.

Thomas,
This is a great drinking scotch but I can't say it's a good value. I'm glad I picked up a bottle and I'll definitely enjoy finishing it but I don't thunk it lives up to it's price tag. For all the hype I found the nose to be disappointing and indistinguishable from other Speyside offerings.

Scott,
Very tasty Scotch. Aroma of course very pleasing with the caramel & vanilla standing out. Smooth taste with initial taste being sweet and followed by spicy. Very smooth with a perfect follow up and finish. Not my favorite, but definitely worth a try.

Alon,
As advertised, very floral aroma. Sweet and smooth in the front of the mouth, a little more spicy in back. Sweet sherry aftertaste that lingers. Oak hints throughout. Gets better with every sip. I drank it neat. A really easy-to-like scotch.
