The Macallan Amber
Amber is part of The Macallan’s new no age statement range of Speyside single malts, which concentrates on colour. The theory is that by using 100% sherry casks and natural colour, the darker the whisky, the older and more complex. The nose is very fruity and hint of caramel and toffee is evident – think Christmas cake! The initial taste is quite sharp which is reminiscent of oak but it mellows quickly and ends smoothly.
This is right up there with Macallan’s best.
