Macallan Gold was released in 2012 as part 1824 range which replaced the distillery's age-statement expressions. It was produced using 9-15 year old first fill and refill sherry casks, which has resulted in an incredibly smooth and rich single malt. One of the fine examples for the "age doesn't matter" camp... Soft gold in colour, this is the lightest of the Macallan 1824 range, but still packed with typical speyside Macallan flavours.
A lemon citrus nose, with zesty orange peel and oaky vanilla notes. The palate reveals a light sweet flavour, more citrus, apples and ginger spices, but in no way overpowering. Overall a slightly sweet and malty whisky, easy going and fresh.
