The Macallan Amber is pale amber in colour. On the nose, aromas of citrus, orange peel, spice, peat and smoke reveal themselves. The flavours are more complex with smoke, ginger, dried fruits, apricots and a hint of cinnamon. This is a great example of what Macallan can do with good-quality oak.
Macallans exceptional oak casks are the single greatest contributor to the outstanding quality, natural colours and distinctive aromas and flavours of the whisky. The oak casks are crafted to their own specifications and account for up to 80% of the final aromas and flavours of The Macallan. Because of this, they spend more per cask than any other distillery in sourcing, crafting, seasoning and caring for their casks.
