The Macallan Gold (1824 Series) Review

Macallan Gold The Macallan has unveiled The 1824 Series, a range showcasing two of its greatest strengths; oak sherry casks and natural colour.

This expression, Gold, is the first to be released from the 1824 series and was launched on the 10th September in London along with a special viewing of the Annie Leibovitz Masters of Photography Collection.

Personally wasn't able to make the launch as it just happened to fall on the same day as my very first day at University but The Macallan were very generous and sent me a little goodie bag including a sample of The Macallan Gold.

Goody Bag

Many thanks to The Macallan for the sample and goody bag, and remember you can pick this lovely dram up from all good whisky retailers including The Whisky Shop where you can even get 10% off if you're a W Club member.

Tasting Notes & Details
