The European oak Tevasa casks were selected by Bob Dalgarno to define and carry the shape of Edition No. 2. Diego Martin American and European oak casks were selected by Joan Roca, European oak Jose Miguel Martin casks were chosen by Josep Roca, and finally, American oak Vasyma butts and puncheons were chosen by pastry chef Jordi Roca.
Bob Dalgarno, The Macallan’s master whiskey maker, says: “By collaborating with the Roca brothers we have combined our knowledge of whiskey making with their creative culinary expertise. The result – a single malt that challenges expectations.
“The driving force behind the Edition Series is the freedom we have to explore different and distinctive casks, some that might not typically be used in other Macallan whiskeys. With wood at the very heart of this series, we very much enjoyed the opportunity to delve into each individual cask, discovering the style and the special influence it can impart on the resulting whiskey. The harmony and balance of Edition No. 2 reflects not only the hand selected casks but the relationship that we have been developing with Joan, Josep and Jordi over the last few years – it is a powerful collaboration and one that I have loved being a part of.”

We are really proud of this partnership and the exceptional whiskey created as a result.”
