In 2009 Macallan released a special series that paid tribute to the venerable age of the distillery. Created by Macallan’s Bob Dalgarno, together with John Ramsay of Glenrothes fame (both distilleries being part of the Edrington group) it was coined the “Macallan 1824 Collection “ and boasted four non chill filtered whiskies, each with its own character at a range of price points.
Launched for the travel retail market, this stunning Macallan is made in sherry-seasoned hoggies and is bottled at 80 UK proof. Very tasty stuff from the 1824 Collection.
Nose: Sherry on the nose, sweet Olosoro, pepper, berry fruits, calves leather and cedar wood.
