The Macallan Amber – 1824 Series. The Macallan no age range of Speyside Malts focuses on colour and this is a wonderful Amber colour.
A slightly more classic sherry nose here, slightly sweeter and still youthful but more grown up with malts coming through nicely, spices and fudgy goodness, red toffee apples eaten in a field of hey late summer.
On the palate this is medium to light in oils, with a touch of older oaks to keep you happy while the sweetness of the malt and sherry influence comes through. Hold it on your tongue for a while and gentle spices come in waves. It’s really easy drinking again.
The finish oddly seems shorter than the Gold, but it’s still great. More of the sherry raisins goodness turn up and make a welcome presence felt. Warming on your chest. Slight orange citrus notes left in the glass and the end.
