The third darkest and third most expensive bottling in the no age statement, sherry matured 1824 Series from The Macallan. Sienna is a naturally occurring pigment, referring not only to the hue of this expression but to the fact that The Macallan’s whiskies are all released with no added coloring. This has been matured in sherry casks and balances rich dried-fruit sweetness with some lighter, spicier notes.
Nose: Noticeably bigger than Gold and Amber, orange peel, vanilla sugar and hot cross buns. Palate: Raisins and dried apricots, ripe greengages, frozen currants.
Finish: Fruity and slightly spiced with a touch of anise.
Overall: This is where the 1824 Series becomes more intense.
