Macallan Gold was released in late 2012 as part of a series of colour-themed bottlings introduced to replace the distillery’s age-statement expressions. Gold has been produced from 9-15 Year Old first fill and refill sherry casks and is designed to sit between the now-defunct 10 Year Old Sherry Oak and 10 Year Old Fine Oak bottlings.
Appearance: Clear, burnished gold.
Aroma: Pungent, vanilla, fresh pressed apple juice and citrus zest with dark chocolate garnish and subtle oakyness.
Taste: Dry cinnamon and ginger toasty spiced oak, smoothed by vanilla and dark chocolate, freshened with apple, zesty lemon and orange.
Aftertaste: Dry oak lingers with cinnamon spice.
