Even with their 370 acres devoted to the production of minstrel barley, the Macallan is able to produce only 1800 bottles of Scotch a year. Each bottle is a treasure, as every step of production is closely watched and safeguarded by a team of passionate growers and distillers. Their selection process and attention to detail is second to none. The Macallan Edition No 2, is a limited edition Highland Single Malt Scotch aged in eight different styles and sizes of European and American oak casks. Each cask was chosen by The Macallan Master Whisky Maker, Bob Dalgarno, with the idea of creating a rich and complex whisky. The results of these varied casks is a whisky of remarkable depth and balance. The Macallan Edition series will only see one release each year, so once current stocks are gone, they are gone for good. ✦ The Macallan e dition No. 2 Single Malt Scotch Whisky $115 (1103962) a s piri T ual e volu T ion T he world was shocked when The Whisky Bible named Suntory's Yamazaki Single Malt Sherry Cask, the "Best Whisky in the World". Yet to Whisky enthusiasts, this didn't come as much of a surprise. Japanese Whisky has been gaining serious acclaim for over a decade now, and for very good reason. Having first been commercially produced in the 1920s, Japanese Whisky was modeled off of the Scottish traditions of distillation. We find that the Suntory 12 Year is not only a perfect introduction for the seasoned aficionado, but also a serious Whisky that you'll find yourself coming back to again and again. ✦ Suntory Hakushu 12 Year Old Single Malt Japanese Whisky $105 (1006760)
