Dur­ing The Ma­callan Edi­tion No.4 launch in Sin­ga­pore, it was the newly built £140 mil­lion The Ma­callan Dis­tillery that stole the show. Video pro­jec­tions and a recre­ation of the dis­tillery’s dis­tinc­tive roof trans­ported guests in spirit to the Spey­side be­fore the golden drams were handed out. No.4 harks to The Ma­callan’s mod­ern flavour pro­files un­der­pinned by sherry-sea­soned oak casks, with an ABV of 48.4%. The palate reg­is­ters warm toast with or­ange mar­malade, smoothed by sweet tof­fee ap­ple and a spicy fin­ish. Col­lec­tors who kept their Edi­tion No.1 and 2 have seen the value of their col­lec­tion soar, so you might want to con­sider a few bot­tles of this well-re­ceived lat­est. $190 from The Ma­callan Bou­tique@1855
