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.

For a cheap to mid-priced whisky, it slides down like velvet, with a sweet but balanced taste. Definitely my go-to whisky...
Rough, harsh, green-wood aftertaste and a splitting headache in the morning after 2 drams. A disgrace to the name Macallan. Bring back the 10.
This is a fantastic malt full of flavour, citrus to start then a fantastic smooth finish. I don't what whisky Felix carbury was tasting but it wasn't macallan, stick to water
I rate this as the best whisky around for the price. It's far nicer than most above the price actually! Wonderfully smooth.
Dreadful. Nasty, harsh, burning.
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.
New product but good old quality.Still knew it was a Macallan !
simply my favourite whisky
Smooth and fresh. Lovely citrus and apple nose.
Absolutely the Best Whisky. Lovely Christmas Git
50th birthday gift from work colleagues. Simply a really nice malt scotch - great nose and flavour.
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.
I got a bottle for my 47th birthday off my good friend Bernard..I have been enjoying malt for more than 20 years and this gold is the most pleasant I have tasted
I've been drinking Malts and blends of all ages for a good number of years. This is by far the nicest I've tasted. I would strongly recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good dram.
agree with sean,got bottle for fathers day,a fantastic whisky,my new no1,great taste throughout,delivers every time,fantastic,give it a go you will be back for more,enjoy!!!
Just got a bottle last night at my birthday whisky session/celebration (8 lads, 9 drams = EPIC!!)... Beautiful stuff... Nose delivers on the notes above. Chocolate notes stand out and occasionally you get a hint at marzipan. Palate is gorgeously smooth, I can only sum it up as "elegant". No harshness here. At 35quid a bottle, definitely recommend.
