The Macallan Ruby
The Macallan Ruby is part of the 1824 Masters Series, a collection of whiskies created to showcase the beautiful range of The Macallan’s natural colour.
Ruby is the most rich and deeply coloured single malt in the series, with glinting hues of red that speak to its intense flavours.
The Ruby brings natural colour with hand-picked sherry seasoned oak casks from Jerez, Spain, to deliver a signature Macallan character.
Nose: Very stylish aromas of hazelnut, dried fruit and sweet spice, with the freshness of raspberries and cherries balancing things out beautifully. Delve deeper and you’ll find some dark-chocolate notes, as well as roasted coffee, demerara sugar and a hint of leather-bound books.
Palate: Smooth mouthfeel, delivering notes of chocolate cake, nuts, red fruits (cherries, raspberries), nutmeg and cinnamon. Rich but not overbearing; there are clearly some top-notch casks at play here.
Finish: Rich and spicy – very satisfying. No single element dominates, with the chocolate, sweet spice and fruit all intermingling. A serious whisky but great fun to drink!
