Macallan Gold was released in late 2012 as part of a series of colour-themed bottlings introduced to replace the distillery's age-statement expressions. Produced from 9-15yo first fill and refill sherry casks, it was designed to sit between the now-defunct 10yo Sherry Oak and 10yo Fine Oak bottlings.

Macallan Gold Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    Nose: Sweet notes of toffee and custard tarts balanced by some fresh green-apple skin.

    Palate: Cinnamon, raisins, baked apples, panna cotta. Quite rich and weighty.

    Finish: Smooth, rich and clean.

  • Tasting Notes for CLASS Magazine

    Clear, burnished gold.

    Pungent, vanilla, fresh pressed apple juice and citrus zest with dark chocolate garnish and subtle oakyness.

    Dry cinnamon and ginger toasty spiced oak, smoothed by vanilla and dark chocolate, freshened with apple, zesty lemon and orange.

    Dry oak lingers with cinnamon spice.

    If you like your whisky sweet this is the one for you. Probably the sweetest malt I have ever tasted. It is full of honey interlaced with chocolate and biscuit notes. Smooth and satisfying. The only problem is it is so moreish.

    Macallan make one of the 5 signature malts of all scotch whisky's produced. This 1824 series is without doubt a fine example of such quality. Smooth, rich with hints of sweetness to the palate. A true master.

    Light but very complex ja balanced honey-citrus-apple show from Macallan. Much better than Amber and almost reasonable priced. However, I'll buy again.
