  1. The Macallan scored this whisky 71 points Connoisseur

    This bottle I have has a special meaning to me because I bought this from a friend who sadly passed away. Never the less it doesn't mean I'll give my full opinion on this one. Macallan really missed the boat when they launched the 1824 series back in 2009!

  4. Lumpowitz scored this whisky 78 points Expert Junior

    Very simply knitted and unfortunately quite boring Macallan.
    • Nose
      Light citrus notes, raw breakfast bacon, vanilla, a trace of fennel seeds.
    • Taste
      Simple, mild and sweet with vanilla, malt and subtle citrus fruits.
    • Finish
      Medium long, gentle finish again with malt and vanilla, with a hint of spice.

    Due to the relatively young age the "Macallan Gold" needs some oxidization to release it's potential and to reduce the rough edges it has right after opening.

    A smooth, easy-drinking Single Malt.As usual with Macallan Whiskies, it costs at least 50% more than it should due to the "Brand"

    I have already three times as a gift in the order. But the other two are living their lives on the shelf. Life is too short......
    • Nose
      78 78
      Something of everything but no one enough.
      Hidden vanilla and a hint of caramel.
      Dissociated from minimal citrus or is it just the peel? .... something flower meadow is hanging.
    • Taste
      79 79
      He starts pretty peppery. In the beginning also typical orange lemons. A touch of ginger.
      But stays sweet.
    • Finish
      77 77
      The end is a rather chocolaty oak. Then he is already gone. Without impression.

    Good whisky. Definitely worth to taste. Value for money may not be optimal, as you get better whiskys for the price. (eg the related Macallan Amber).
    • Nose
      Very pleasant smell in the much fruit comes through. Maybe a touch of peach.
    • Taste
      Initially, the alcohol covers some of the taste. One tastes later but also much fruit (peach ?, apricot?). Finally spicy and the oak comes through.
    • Finish
      Medium-length finish. It retains the fruit taste in the mouth for a longer time and a noticeable spicy oak.
