The second darkest whisky in Macallan's 1824 Series, comprising of naturally coloured whiskies selected by hue and flavour. This has been matured in sherry casks and balances rich dried fruit sweetness with some lighter spicier notes.
The newer sherried Macallans all seem to have a tinge of bitterness comapred to the classic sherry Macallan 12 / 18 year olds from the early 2000's. Nonetheless, still a pleasant dram.

Modern made Macallan with a massive dryness and hints of sour red currants. Somewhere between the classic 12 yo. Sherry Oak and 18 yo. Fine Oak. Not bad at all, but Macallan used to be better in past times.

Richer in taste and longer in finish than the Amber version but lacking the nose of its cheaper sibling. I tried blending a little of both but the result, IMO was lesser than each one on their own. Both are delicious.
