The Macallan Concept No. 2 Single Malt Whisky 700ml (2019)
Concept Number 2' is the second single malt in the Concept series created exclusively for global travel retail. Packaged as a celebration of music, the idea came from Macallan Whisky Maker, Steve Bremner who by day blends whisky and by night mixes music as a DJ.
Says Bremner, “Music has inspired many aspects of my life, both creatively and practically, as has whisky, so the creation of Concept Number 2 allowed me to look at my two passions through a different lens. Creating a track and crafting a single malt can take a similar path. Beginning with the layering of sounds just like the layering of different flavours from specific cask types. Each different cask brings its own influence to the character of the liquid, like each instrument, or sound adds depth to a track. In both cases, we can alter each different element to play up or down particular sounds or flavours.”
Taste-wise, Macallan describe sherry-seasoned American oak bringing a rhythmic sweetness of vanilla, citrus and toffee, while the rounded spiciness of Miguel Martin sherry casks creates an energetic treble. ex-bourbon casks introduce harmonies of floral citrus and vanilla. 40% Alc./Vol.
