The distillery manager's darling. 

Founded in 1824, The Macallan is one of the “Big 3” distilleries in Scotland. Fortunately, they have achieved this scale without sacrificing quality. 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 Whisky Maker's Edition can be hard to find. It was originally a special edition for the travel retail market — available exclusively at international terminals in exotic locations. So if you haven’t seen your passport in a few years, this is a rare chance to scoop up a bottle. It’s called “Whisky Maker’s Edition” after Bob Dalgarno, Macallan’s distillery manager.

Macallan’s famous single malt is aged exclusively in Sherry casks. This one is aged in a mix of Sherry and Bourbon casks so it will be a bit less sweet and a bit more spicy. It is also served up at Bob’s preferred strength — 42.8% ABV — so it is more powerful as well.

Smartass Corner
The “Big 3” distilleries in Scotland are #1 Glenlivet, #2 Macallan, and #3 Glenfiddich. Together, they produce nearly 20 million bottles of Whisky per year — the vast majority of which is used in their respective single malt offerings.
