The Macallan Edition No. 2 Single Malt Scotch Whisky

The Macallan Edition No. 2 is lighter in color than other bottles from this distillery and 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.

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. 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. In the winter, when there was little activity on the farm, Reid would ferment and distill his excess grains into whisky, which was often drunk straight from the still or sold to travelers passing through the town.

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.
