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.

He'll grant one wish per day until Christmas...
Nose: Soft aromatic vanilla, lemon and barley with hints of ginger.
Palate: Surprisingly thick and fruity compared to the nose. Golden sultanas, dates, apple peelings and a dusting of cinnamon.
Finish: Fragrant oak finish.
Overall: The second level in the 1824 Series, after the more citrus-led Gold.
Macallan is finished
Over this Christmas I will enjoy my last battle of Macallan 18. Currently, nothing out there from Macallan to replace it.

You're getting what you pay for!!
Macallan has set the standard! they are simply trying to appease a growing market of young scotch drinks..... this baby has some bite! but it's true and lite! The greenhorns out there should try this scotch for both its price point and nodes.... I think people are forgetting this is a growing market and people want to try new things

Average good malt...
good but...nothing special
...good whisky as usual, not one to remember for the ages, but decent and possibly the only good malt in their terrible advents calendar.

It's really light on smell and delicate, soft taste. Very easy to enjoy, drinkable, good for beginers because of not strong taste and body

That's some great scotch
I don't have a problem with not having age statements. In some ways, not having an age statement allows the distiller to blend the whiskys with an eye only to flavor, and not being prevented from using a certain barrel in the blend for because some arbitrary age designation isn't being met. That being said... I'm a little suspicious that Macallan is using these non-age stated whiskys as a way to deal with the fact that they simply can't meet demand right now.
Anyway... I thought this whisky was just OK, and kind of lacked depth of flavor. I suppose it's a little lighter than most scotch, if that's what you're looking for. For this price though, I could get a far superior whisky from Macallan or another distiller and still have money left over.

Bought a bottle for a friend's birthday. Had the pleasure of sharing it with him and friends. New to all of us and it was wonderful. Full flavors of vanilla and smooth finish. While a bit pricey in Toronto well worth the price. By the way, age be damned this is really good stuff.

Not great on the nose but an unexpected delight - silky smooth and full of fruit. A good one to catch out whiskey snobs!Overall tastes similar to the Macallan 10 and normally £50 plus - this is great value. last tip - 2 drops of water makes it even more drinkable

I have been drinking this stuff for the last few months and to be honest I like it a lot. I am not a fan of the no age statements but I do know what I like. I find it extremely soft on the nose. (in fact it is almost as if there is no smell) but on the palate if is definitely a MACALLAN. A good everyday dram. I like it!

Age Statement Nonsense. Please.
Just try it, it's good.
People complaining about age statements need to educate themselves. Age statements do not indicate quality and one should trust Macallan to know when the whisky is ready. In addition, I highly doubt they care that you are staying away, considering the demand they have all over the world.

Stop complaining about the age issue and try it out.
Sweet delicate with apple and toffee notes.
This one will go in my collection as a must have.

you are no whiskylover if age is all you go by! macallan is one of the best distillers in the world with a Grand master blender thats just amazing. if you don't want to buy it and do not thrust the quality then good riddance.

Age statements do not make much of a difference to quality as long as it was made correctly and not on the cheap. Many 10 year old bottlings are better than those aged 18 years. I would trust that at this price, it would be a quality bottling using quality barrels to age the spirit. However, what I do have an issue with is the 40%. Come on!! At this price is expect at least 43% or 46%. A bit disappointed at that.

any answer to the questions above?

The Macallan Whisky
Given the price of The Macallan Whisky one should be entitled to know it's age. Why are they hiding it?
24th December 2013
I do not date under age women and I do not drink under age scotch . When there is no age on scotch I am of the opinion that it's age is hidden on purpose .

No Age Statement
Until Macallan come to the senses and return to telling consumers just how old their whisky is, I am keeping well away. At £46 a bottle I believe I am entitled to know its age - Why are Macallan hiding the ages of their whiskys?

@Is this the right price?
Nice spot. This has now indeed been rectified. --The Chaps at Master of Malt

Is this the right price?
I thought the Amber was meant to be cheaper than the Sienna.
