"The Macallan Edition No. 5 celebrates The Macallan’s extensive natural colour spectrum and the intricate whisky making process, in partnership with masters at the Pantone Color Institute™ to create a unique shade of purple that features on the packaging.
With the color of Sunlight Barley, notes of vanilla and toffee with notes of oak, nutmeg, ginger, lemon basil and pear linger on the nose. On the palate, fresh and sweet with caramel moving into poached peaches and ripe pear. Quickly followed by a toffee sweetness with light oak spices in the form of nutmeg and hints of ginger in the background. The finish is long and sweet."
