Whisky Focus - The Macallan Ruby 1824 Series Review & Tasting Notes

The Macallan Ruby 1824 Series Review

17th May  2013
The Macallan Ruby 100% Sherry Cask Matured 100% Natural Colour 43% ABV

Sitting at the top of the new Macallan 1824 Series, The Macallan Ruby is the richest and deepest coloured Macallan in the new series.

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Colour: Dark deep ruby red.

Nose: Dark cherries, coffee then big sherried fruitcake notes with raisins sultanas and toffee.

Taste: A smooth delivery of lovely dark sherried fruit - burnt raisins and sultanas, orange, a light sweet vanilla sweetness peaks through from behind the lovely dark fruit and a touch of cloves hiding there also, nutmeg and then the appearance of cinnamon and dry ginger.

Finish: A long rich lingering dark sherried mildly drying finish. Some spicy oaky notes.

Comment: As you move up the Macallan 1824 range the colours get darker and the whisky gets richer. This is by far the richest of the range. If you are looking for a big bold sherried Macallan then this is definitely the one for you. The Macallan sherry oak style fans will love the Macallan Ruby..

SMW Score 91/100
