Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Nose: Pain aux raisins and brioche, with some cleansing grapey notes and toasty spice.
Palate: Cinnamon and boozy raisins. Rich texture, mouthfilling, but still precise and clean. Easy to drink.
Finish: Boozy apple crumble, with cinnamon and milk chocolate.

Smooth, easy drinking
An excellent scotch. Very clean, smooth sweet with a little heat. One of the best for under 80$(CAD)
Quite a different type of character. Definitely not as good as the 12 or 15 year. I'm not getting much of the fruit that others write about. Almost getting bit of brine and salt water. Had high hopes based on other reviews but this one is not for me.
Macallan Amber is gentle on the nose, with the subtlety of oak, sherry, vanilla and citrus coming through invitingly in a `spirited' fashion. It retains this gentleness on the palate with a nice somewhat fruity-spicy finish.
I am a beginning Whisky drinker bit this is by far the worst whisky i ever tasted. No character at all. Only taste is nasty and artificial. No finish whatsoever. I doubt whether this really is a whisky. I had high hopes for Macallan but this will be my first and last bottle.
Nice single malt, subtle and caressing. A good choice for a "Me" time...
Not a fan. Nose is superficial. Mouth slightly alcoholic, not quite full. Aftertaste slightly fruity and rich. Enjoyable but not all the way. 12y.o. better.
Nose is good, water mouth feel and the fisnish is short and forgetable. Would not recommend or buy another bottle.
One of my favourites. Although pricey, the amber presents itself with a wonderful colour tone and appeal. Tastes are bold and inspiring. This whisky gives a strong pleasure, and a sharp finish.
Terrible, absolutely terrible. I orderd a dram in a bar and i got this awfull whiskey. On the nose it was interesting, sherry notes mixed with roasted coffee beans and chocolate. But the palate was very bland as if it was waterd down, an extremly thin taste. Just boring. Finish was short, almost nonexistant and i thank the gods for that. Maybe the barman messed something up, but it wasn't what i expected.
This is a very good whisky, is it as good as their more premium offerings, no however, it''s a decent dram for the money! The nose is very fruity and hint of caramel and toffee is evident, think Christmas cake! The initial taste is quite sharp which reminds me of oak but it mellows quickly and ends smoothly, a great smooth whisky.
A decent whisky, however the 12 year old is better in my opinion
I mean, it''s pretty good. It hits all the right notes, the problem is that it is quite evidently supposed to be the same as the 12 it replaced and it comes up way short and carries a bigger price tag to boot. even as good as the 12 is, for the 92 they were asking here in Ontario it was alot, and the 100 they are asking for this is wah too much. not a bad dram but doesn''t live up to the 12 it''s supposed to replace
This is a very different experience to the Gold which is worth avoiding. All be it without an age statement, its still a very enjoyable smooth single malt.
Macallan, Macallan, what are you doing. Weak nose and thin taste, this will not end good.
Stupendous cinnamon spiced nose. Just pour a dram and sniff this and you'll think its Christmas. Palate is surprisingly a bit thin after the nose but sweetie shop delicious nonetheless. Finish is short but satisfying. The best value of the range I think.
Quality apart, it is very difficult to navigate through the Macallan's range now. Don't know whether this was a good move as far as the marketing and Macallan's afficionados is concerned.
