Liquid gold with notes of citrus and boiled sweets.

The Macallan 1824 Series celebrated the Speyside distillery’s commitment to 100% natural colour, drawn from the wood in which the spirit is matured. The four no-age-statement Single Malt Scotch Whiskies ranged from Gold through Amber and Sienna to Ruby. The concept being the colour of the whisky reflects its age as the colour of each expression becomes richer as the range progresses and its flavours more intense. The older the whisky, the darker it will be.

While the 1824 Series was discontinued in early 2018 as the distiller focused on its Double Cask, Triple Cask Matured and Sherry Oak ranges, the Macallan Gold outlived its siblings, reborn as the The Macallan Gold Double Cask.

The Double Cask range marries the classic Macallan style with the unmistakable sweetness of American oak. Light citrus notes and boiled sweets dominate the palate before giving way to cinnamon, ginger and toasted apples.

Tasting notes

The Nose: Lemon citrus, then orange peel and an interlacing sweetness that softens but doesn’t eliminate the zest. A quiet note of vanilla is followed by dark chocolate with lingering floral and light oak notes.

The Palate: Citrus and boiled sweets rule the palate, along with hints of ginger and cinnamon, while soft oak tones reveal toasted apples.

The Finish: Medium sweet, malty and slightly dry.
