We've managed to find a small parcel of Macallan's short-lived Amber whisky based liqueur, which was discontinued some time back despite winning more than one award in its brief lifetime. Flavoured with pecan and maple syrup, this is a treat for the sweet-tooths among you.
generally i don't like liquers but Amber is special and i serve it at dinner parties and it has been a hit. The first time i picked this up was at the Macallan Visitor center in 2010. Now its a rarity and i am down to my last 2 bottles.

In the film Scrooge (1970, Albert Finney) - this is what the Ghost of Christmas present refers to as the "milk of human kindness"!

This is a fantastic liqueur. i stick a drop in the bottom of my hip flask top it up with various malt whisky and share while watching the local rugby team. All the guys love it.

after reading the reveiws from people around the world , and those countrys sold out . i was able to grab 3 bottles of the dying stock..... i have to say , i wasn,t disserpointed. sweet is a understatment. the honey is smooth and the pecan is punchy with an amazingly long after taste exceeding my hang over . in short ..its on parr with frangelico = best liqueur - value for money. if you are lucky to get this bottle to drink , then i,ll say sweet dreams .

So we thought that our whisky liqueur experience had peaked with the Old Pultney, Lochan Ora and New JD. Well that was until we tried this, maple, pecan it's superb. A cut above all else. Buy while you can!

Bought this lovely little drop a few years ago on holiday, its one of the finest liquer whiskey's I have ever tasted. Can't buy in Australia but luckily found The Whiskey Exchange.

I absolutely love this. Perfect for those with a sweet tooth. I'm planning to try it with pancakes or waffles! Fantastic stuff. Wish it wasn't discontinued.

Would you believe my wife worked for Macallan. Amber was on the staff price list until 3 months ago. She told me there was plenty and no need to order any until I ran out. Now, guess what, they ran out and she has now left the company. Down to my last 2 cases. boo hoo . I loved it!!!!!!!!!!!!

Found several bottles in the SF Bay area last December (2009). Mostly in the San Mateo and South San Francisco area. Try some of the out of the way liquor stores (like I did). You might get lucky. I sure did, bought all 4 bottles that I could find. Still have 3 left, savoring every drop.

Being a lover of Macallan I recently ordered a bottle out of curiosity from the Whisky Exchange. Drambuie has always been too thick and sweet but enjoyable as a rusty nail. But Amber is nectar unbelievable and complete, I must order some more before it dissapears

Just received the case we ordered through a friend in the US, since you're unable to deliver to Canada. I am a scotch lover, but this brings my love affair to new heights. We may have to order more just to ensure a supply for a while to come!

Alas, alack, anon...Please do not say that there be no more Amber. A wee dram of sweet heaven in a glass, has you thinking of pecan ice cream, adding to apple pie (hic), and various other methods of indulgence. Please bring back this wonderful piece of Speyside.

J'ai gouter le Amber Macallan dans un restaurant haute gamme. J'ai vraiment apprecie ce gout raffine. J'ai donc achete plusieurs bouteilles et fait deguster a nos amis, tous unanimes. Mais, maintenant...il n'est plus disponible !!! Il fait parti des PLAISIR DE LA VIE ! Sera-t-il disponible bientot? Jocelyne

The nicest liqueur ever. Please, please, please bring it back and market it properly. With the right marketing it would surely become a global best seller!
