The Macallan Edition No. 2: Collaborating for Excellence



The Macallan is known for producing some of the finest single malt whiskies in the world. Each release is carefully crafted to capture the essence of the distillery’s unique character, and the limited edition releases are particularly sought after by whisky enthusiasts. The Macallan Edition No. 2 is a collaboration between the distillery’s master whisky maker and two of the world’s top chefs, and it is a perfect example of what can be achieved when experts in different fields come together to create something truly exceptional.


The Macallan Edition No. 2 was created by master whisky maker, Bob Dalgarno, in collaboration with Joan, Josep, and Jordi Roca, who are considered some of the world’s top chefs. The Roca brothers are the creative force behind El Celler de Can Roca, which has been ranked as the world’s best restaurant on multiple Blanton’s price occasions. The collaboration between these experts was intended to create a whisky that would appeal to the senses in the same way that the Rocas’ dishes do.

Selection of Casks:

The Macallan Edition No. 2 is made from a selection of sherry-seasoned American and European oak casks, as well as first-fill bourbon casks. The casks were chosen for their exceptional quality and were aged in different parts of The Macallan’s warehouses to create a range of flavors and aromas.

Tasting Notes:

The Macallan Edition No. 2 has a rich, complex flavor profile that is both smooth and satisfying. It has notes of vanilla, caramel, and chocolate, as well as hints of fruit and spices. The whisky has a long, lingering finish that is both sweet and slightly smoky.


The Macallan Edition No. 2 is presented in a stunning black box that features the signature colors of El Celler de Can Roca. The bottle itself is designed to evoke the look and feel of a laboratory flask, with a heavy base and a cork stopper. The label features a striking design that incorporates a range of colors and textures.


The Macallan Edition No. 2 is a testament to the power of collaboration and the pursuit of excellence. The combination of The Macallan’s exceptional whisky making skills and the Rocas’ culinary creativity has resulted in a whisky that is truly exceptional. The Macallan Edition No. 2 is a must-try for any serious whisky enthusiast, and it is sure to become a treasured addition to any whisky collection.
