- Macallan Amber 1824 Series
Macallan Amber 1824 Series Speyside single malt Scotch whisky. Matured in Spanish oak.
Nose: Polite, almost apologetic at first, with a floral, citrus sweet nose that gains presence, commanding a chorus of vanilla notes over freshly harvested grain. Raisin, sultana and cinnamon look on as toffee apples and candy floss step into the limelight.
Palate: Fresh green apples and lemons mingle with cinnamon. Ginger notes hover as fruit takes over, with subtle oak lingering in the wings.
Finish: Light to medium with soft fruits and cereal, slightly dry.
