Today sees the official launch of Macallan Gold, the eagerly anticipated first release in the new 1824 Series from the famous Speyside distillery. The 1824 Series is an innovative new range of single malts that has been developed by Bob Dalgarno, the Master Whisky Maker at Macallan, and focuses on colour. The ideas are to let the wood of the cask, and the colour that it imparts into the whisky, do the talking and that certain colours in whisky relate to certain flavour characteristics.
The Gold is constructed from a number of different ex-sherry casks, both first and second fill, and contains whisky of differing ages between nine and fifteen years old.
