One can never think of a single malt more befitting a memorable send-off for a dear friend than the Macallan No. 5. Because its finish is long and sweet, just like our well-wishes and the hard good-bye to all that; and its sunlight barley color redolent of sad sunsets.
As a matter of fact, it’s all about the color.
The Macallan Edition No. 5 is a homage to The Macallan’s extensive natural color spectrum and the unrivaled commitment to the mastery of wood and spirit.
The whisky company partners with the masters at the Pantone Color Institute to create a bold one-of-a-kind shade of purple that is front and center on the Edition No. 5 packaging characteristic of an enigmatic combination of red and blue.
Because, known to be authentic and natural in terms of color, The Macallan whiskies are true to their time spent in best casks for which The Macallan is known. Sourced, crafted, toasted and seasoned under the watchful eye of the Master of Wood, the hand-picked casks are delivered to the demanding specifications of the Whisky Mastery Team. It is the oak that makes the greatest contribution to the quality, natural color and distinctive aromas and flavors at the heart of this single-malt whisky.
Once filled, the maturing spirit remains undisturbed in the same casks for the necessary number of years it needs to be worthy of its destined Macallan expression. It is these oak casks that make the greatest contribution to the quality, natural color and distinctive aromas and flavors which lie at the heart of The Macallan single malt.
“It’s all about pushing boundaries,” The Macallan Brand Ambassador for Southeast Asia Randall Tan says. “We showcase the color because of the complexity of the whisky itself. It’s a very complex whisky. It’s a non-age statement. It’s very multi-layered. It’s a whisky that keeps on giving.”
The Macallan Edition No. 5 is an expression of The Macallan’s enduring desire to go beyond ordinary, to seek out the extraordinary, and create peerless single malts.
