Review #302. Macallan Edition No. 2


Review #302 – The Macallan No.2 Release

Whiskey Network Review #302 | /r/Scotch Review #124 – The Macallan No.2 , 96.4pf | 48.2% ABV

Thanks to /u/texacer for this here sample. I’m a big fan of Mac but was wary to purchase this given their shenanigans, as of late.

Style: Single Malt Scotch Whiskey

Producer: The Macallan

Proof: 96.4pf | 48.2% ABV

Age: No age stated.

Mashbill: Single Malt, Barley

Source: /r/scotchswap sample


Nose: Sweet syrupy fig, maple. No ethanol. Rich brown sugar, dates, mildly sulfuric, creamy sugar.

Taste: Richer Mac 12 notes, sulfuric pepper, sweet sherry. Figs, dates, raspberries, cocoa, vanilla.

Finish: Medium, little heat, sweet sherried char.

Overall: Overall, this is good. I enjoy the elevated proof and despite all the wild experimental aging and blending they did, this drinks just like a slightly boosted Macallan 12 to me. I’m going to give it a Rank 6.
Price is not considered in my review or my ranking. That being said, this is almost double the price of Macallan 12, and that tells me to leave it on the shelf, next to basically every fine oak product ever produced by Macallan.

Rating: 6
