“Quintessential Macallan! If someone asks me how a Macallan should taste I would give them a dram of this whisky.”
The distiller declares that "Drawing on casks which deliver a maximum intensity and depth of flavour, this single malt includes some traditional Sherry seasoned hogshead casks specially reserved for this expression. Non-chill filtered and bottled at the old-style 80o proof, more commonly known as '20 under', this is a dram with real character."
If you like this whisky you should try some of the Sherry Oak Macallans.
This dram has a amber-like color.
Nose (90): more than average. honey, toffee, pears, peaches, nuts, raisins, citrus, vanilla.
Palate (93): smooth, powerful, oily. honey, peaches, tobacco, wood, spices, raisins. Lovely! Strong and fruity with lots of sherry character.
Finish (91): longer than average. honey, raisins, nuts, cocoa.So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Macallan The 1824 Collection Estate Reserve with 91 points over 100.
