Macallan Edition No 2 Situated on a ridge above the banks of the River Spey, the Easter Elchies House has been the spiritual home of The Macallan for over three centuries. In 1820, Alexander Reid began renting the home from Sir Lewis Grant of Grant. Reid was a farmer, and soon after he sowed the fields surrounding the home with barley, Reid established the first licensed distillery on the estate, which he named Macallan after an ancient church that had been destroyed by fire during the 15th century. The Macallan Edition No 2 Single Malt

Today, the Macallan Estate encompasses 370 acres, 95 of which are devoted to the production of the Macallan Estate’s Minstrel barley (a single acre produces about 2.5 tons of barley each year, enough to yield 1,800 bottles of The Macallan). In addition, the distillery contracts with farmers to purchase barley that is low in nitrogen and high in starch, resulting in a richer, weightier whisky.

After the barley is harvested in late August and early September, it is malted before being mashed in one of The Macallan’s two mash tuns, a process that takes between four and eight hours. In addition, the curiously small stills — some of “the smallest stills within the Scotch whisky industry,” according to production manager Alexander Tweedie — produce a whisky with a heavy, oily flavor.

Following distillation, The Macallan distillers remove the heads and tails of the whisky and collect approximately 16% of the spirit to fill into casks for maturation. This “cut,” which is among the highest of any Scottish distillery, results in a more full-bodied and richer whisky.

Macallan Edition No. 2 Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky is the second release in an annual limited released series from the esteemed distillery. Edition No. 2 is a collaboration between the Macallan Master Whisky Maker, Bob Dalgarno, and the Roca brothers, whose restaurant El Celler de Can Roca has been named best restaurant in the world twice.

A bit lighter than other bottles from this distillery, The Macallan Edition No. 2 has a sweet aroma of vanilla, apple and ginger. The palate brings more warmth, with hints of cracked black pepper and silky richness throughout, leading to a long and smooth finish filled with brown sugar, nutmeg, and a touch of chocolate.
