    Very similar to Amber, a quite simple Macallan, easy to drink
    • Nose
      Sherry, orange, lemon, cardamom and cinnamon, some coffee, wood notes, after a while, dark chocolate appears
    • Taste
      Again sherry and orange, gingerbread, oak, at first looks a bit thin in the mouth, but then increases by the remaining sherry taste
    • Finish
      Only the sherry stays longer, otherwise rather short to medium

    Pretty nice reasonably priced bottle from Mac. Entrylevel stuff, but an enjoyable sip. These kind of bottles are awesome. You can just buy them without any risk. Spend the money and you can be sure to get your moneys worth.

      Nice and easy. Nothing spectacular, but nice. Some spices. Dried fruits. Benefits from the sherry cask portion.

      Medium ending. Leaves a nice fruity oiliness in the mouth. Some vanilla jumping in your tongue as well..

    "The 1824 Collection is a range of Macallans released for the travel

    retail market. The Select Oak edition is a complex combination of

    first-fill European oak casks seasoned with oloroso sherry, and American

    oak casks seasoned with either oloroso sherry or bourbon."

    Mild and drinkable dram.
    • Nose
      It tingles the nose a little. Dark fruits. Plums, blackberries, figs. Bit of a cigar box - cedar wood and sweet tobacco.
      After the first sip, sweeter like vanilla and marzipan.
    • Taste
      Mild and sweet. Creamy mouthfeel. Lots of dark fruits and chocolate. Here, too, mild, sweet cigar tobacco. Will be very sweet.
    • Finish
      Mild and soft. Medium length. Slightly spicy with a few walnuts.

  10. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Begins with a clear nutty maltiness, gradually followed by vanilla, brown sugar and chocolate with caramel pieces. Becomes a bit more sryry-toned over time. Later also some oak.
    • Taste
      Spicy-malty start with nutty sherry tones. Then dark chocolate, dried figs, melted brown sugar and "giant" chewing clay.
    • Finish
      Medium long and very chocolaty. Later also roasted hazelnuts.
