The Macallan Amber is part of the colour-themed 1824 non age statement series of whiskies. Originating from Speyside, the Amber edition has been created exclusively in sherry casks, and is a full flavoured and rich single malt. Unsurprisingly deep amber in colour, it should be noted that the oak influence on this whisky is incredible.
Plenty of vanilla notes, citrus and soft chocolate on the nose, and a hint of ginger spice. This leads to a pleasantly surprising fruity taste, with more dried fruits and cereal biscuits on the palate. Definitely a step up in flavour and fullness from the Gold expression in the series. The finish is oaky, with a touch of dried fruit and Christmas-themed spices.
