Top reviews for The Macallan Edition No.5:

— Sampled this along with several more expensive offerings from The Macallan at an official tasting dinner last year and fell in love. Completely full of flavor that brings a kick and lasts. I will be hoarding every last bottle I can find of this stuff :-)

— great but not no 1 great

— I thought Edition no.4 was the best tasting Scotch I had ever enjoyed. No. 5 gives it a run for its money though.

Abdias,
I bought this bottle for my dads birthday and all I can say is wow. We ended up drinking half the bottle in one sitting. To us there was nothing really special about the color because it looks similar to many other whiskys but the taste was incredible. Very smooth hints of Vanilla and caramel with a little kick of spice at the end. Definitely something to keep around in the liquor cabinet for those special moments.

A very good complex flavor that takes a bit to set in

The Sherry notes are incredible and Iā€™m liking this better than the last two editions.

Not worth the money. The Macallan Classic Cut is still the best NAS from Macallan. This is a very young whiskey with a big price thanks to a savvy marketing team. Not bad but not worth $100+. Drinks more like a $50 bottle
