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

The Macallan Sienna 1824 Series Review

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

The Macallan Sienna is the third of four whiskies in the new Macallan 1824 Series which is a series of single malt Scotch whiskies where each whisky takes its name from the colour of whisky.

As you move up the range the natural colour of the whisky gets darker and of course the sherry notes become bigger and bolder.

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Colour: Rich auburn hinting at the sherry influence to come.

Nose: Burnt sugar, orange, dark cherry, toasty vanilla, toffee.

Taste: Rich, full bodied. Burnt raisins, orange, dark cherry, chocolate, a little zesty lemon, cinnamon, some fresh apples and some mild oak spice and ginger hanging around in the background.

Finish: A long warming finish with dark sherried fruit and nutmeg.

Comment: A lovely well balanced dram for the Macallan sherry oak lovers, loads going on here, full of flavour and my choice out of the new Macallan 1824 Series.

I predict this one will be very popular amongst the Macallan fans given its quality and its price.

SMW Score 93/100

The Macallan Sienna (RRP 66) is now available from  The Whisky Exchange
