Folio 4 features an advertisement including a strathspey composed by James Scott Skinner (1843-1927). The ad notes that Skinner, "The Strathspey King", was moved to music by the lilting flavour and melting resonances of a tumbler of his favourite malt whisky - The Macallan.
The ad, small but groundbreaking, was the first instance of musical notation displayed on a page of British newspaper, The Times, and quite possibly in the advertising of any whisky.
Distilled in 1998 and bottled by Gordon & MacPhail in 2017, this Macallan vintage makes the perfect gift – whether addressed to your good self or a loved one! With or without water, the dram goes down a storm, showcasing a soft, fruity flavor with elements of nut, vanilla and butterscotch.
Edition No.4 is a single malt drawn from a combination of European and American oak casks, presenting a zesty, vibrant and invigorating character, that brings to life the fore notes of rounded honey, sweet toffee and citrus fruits.
The Macallan Edition No.4 is the latest release in this innovative annual Series. Edition No.4 is developed under the guidance of Master Distiller, Nick Savage.

Tasting Note :
Nose: is quite crisp and sweet. There are notes of sultanas and fresh apple blossom. There is a defined floral note with a beautiful sherry, calvados emerges with a tropical fruit note and golden syrup.
Palate: is of medium-body and quite firm. There are notes of hot pastries and marmalade, sultanas and peels with a developing sweetness from the barley sugar.
Finish: is of good length with a solid oaked note.
Nose: Opulent, yet soft and slightly meandering, picture an orchestra setting up: quiet vanilla with deep notes, already in tune; raisin bold and booming, though only in spells; chocolate a star performer, but not a standout; a sweet ensemble of apple, lemon and orange, beautifully balanced with a spicy quartet of root ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. Then oak conducts, mature and elegant, with patience only time delivers.
Palate: The spicy quartet leads, loud and full, unwavering in their performance. Raisin dares to temper - and succeeds!! – but oak takes control; timeless, polished, rich and resonating. Vanilla and chocolate compliment each other in the background
Finish: Light citrus zest, yet full and warming
