Insider knowledge: The Macallan Ruby - 1824 Series whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be The Macallan Ruby - 1824 Series whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Rich wedding cake and espresso, cocoa, a little clove and walnut.
Palate: Raspberry coulis, maraschino, prunes, marmalade.
Finish: Long and rich, dark berries and ginger.
Overall: Big, bold, fruity sherried Speyside.
I live in Seattle and received my order in 2 days. So incredible...so dangerous! You guys should get into the flowers selling biz to appease the wives who frequently receive the shipment. The Ruby is fantastic. If you live in the states, do it! The no age statement is interesting and in my opinion it's a 15-21yo. It bears a similar taste/feeling to the 18 sherry/oak.
My main point is that 1) I can't buy my current shipment in the US. And 2) if I buy Macallan 18 here, it's $190.
Keep up the good work gents! You have a customer for life!
