Inspired by The Macallan's natural colour spectrum and the intricate whisky making process, the illustrious colour consultancy has created a specific colour reflective of this single malt - a uniquely bold shade of purple. The colour purple is described as the 'most enigmatic of shades' due to the multi-faceted and intricate combination of red and blue. The special purple shade create for The Macallan Edition No.5 is a celebration of the whisky making process, complex and precise as the whisky maker carefully and masterfully selects casks to craft this spirit. This unique colour celebrates the infinite hues, creativity and expertise which hamesses the natural colour of The Macallan.
Only American oak casks were selected to craft Edition No.5. The casks were primarily handpicked for their colour in order to deliver a whisky with a wonderfully full flavour. The result is a spirit with beautiful pale amber colour, accompanied by an intriguingly intense flavour profile that hosts sweet notes of caramel and fresh fruit combined with oak spices.
Every year, a selection of oak casks will be identified from all the casks maturing at The Macallan Distillery to produce a new Edition.
Edition No.5 is a celebration of The Macallan's spectrum of natural colour which has inspired the world-renowned Pantone Color Institute to create a unique and exquisitely complex shade of purple, which has been featured on the packaging design of this release.
