Description

The Macallan 1824 series is exclusively matured in sherry oak casks from Jerez, Spain.  These casks are filled with aged sherries and left to mature before receiving the new make spirit.

Tasting Notes

Nose
Distillery:  Polite, almost apologetic at first, with a floral, citrus sweet nose that gains presence, commanding a chorus of sweet vanilla notes over freshly harvested grain. Raisin, sultana and cinnamon look on as toffee apples and candy floss step into the limelight.

The WSD: Fruity toffee and raisin biscuits which become more like fudge with time.  Maybe some strawberry jam on the top as well.

Taste
Distillery:  Fresh green apples and lemons mingle with cinnamon. Ginger notes hover as fruit takes over, with subtle oak lingering in the wings.

The WSD:  Quite power and smooth at the same time.  There is a wood edge running to cinder toffee.  Quite chewy.

Finish
Distillery:  The finale is light to medium, with soft fruits and cereal, slightly dry.
