The final release in the "Editions" series, this limited bottling pays homage to the mighty River Spey which flows through the Estate and is globally renowned as a home to the mighty Atlantic salmon. The Macallan Ghillie is a custodian of the River Spey and advocate for sustaining the wildlife in and around it. On their 1.75 mile stretch of river, a fortunate few can test their skills in the hope of catching – and releasing – wild Atlantic salmon using Hardy’s incomparable tackle. With notes of raisin, dates and figs dominating the aromatics as sultana and toffee covered apples add texture and depth, you'll find a dense richness at the start that prevails throughout the rest of the experience. Dry ginger and soft cinnamon hint at the edges. Majestic tones of dark chocolate and vanilla sweetness linger in the background. It's a full-bodied dram that is nothing like what we've previously experienced with The Macallan.
With over 200 years of malt mastery under their belt, the Macallan is undeniably the benchmark for which all others are judged. So much so, they've actually been banned from spirits competitions because they've won too many times. With less than 16% of their product ever making into a Macallan bottle, they're obsession with perfection has certainly paid off. We've acquired a few of their limited edition and rare single malts for you imbibing pleasure. Fair warning, these delicious treats will not be around for long.
