The Macallan Sienna Details

Whisky or Whiskey
Insider knowledge: The Macallan Sienna - 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 Sienna - 1824 Series whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
The Macallan Sienna
The third darkest and third most expensive bottling in the no age statement, sherry matured 1824 Series from The Macallan. Sienna is a naturally occuring pigment, referring not only to the hue of this expression but to the fact that The Macallan's whiskies are all released with no added colouring.
In stock, worldwide delivery available.
Can be dispatched within 48 hours.
Nose: Noticeably bigger than Gold and Amber, orange peel, vanilla sugar and hot cross buns.
Palate: Raisins and dried apricots, ripe greengages, frozen currants.
Finish: Fruity and slightly spiced with a touch of anise.
Overall: This is where the 1824 Series becomes more intense.
Now THIS is The Macallan.
Best whiskey ever
Tried a sample at The MACALLEN distillery in Scotland and thought it was nice. Just opened the bottle I purchased and poured a couple of glasses here in California and shared them with my landlord and his wife and they thought it was mazing. So smooth and creamy and full of flavour.

I tried this in a flight of about 15 others and ended up liking this one so much that I paid the higher cost to ensure it was the only think I drank (alcohol wise) the rest of the time I was in Scotland

Spicy, dried fruits, orange and peanut butter are prevalent in this dram. I was seriously impressed after the average Gold. Age statements are important, but quality is king, and this Macallan is quality.

This is what I have come to expect from The Macallan. Gold...tap water. Amber was a wonderful dram, but Sienna is superb. The nose, the palate, the spicy long finish....beautiful. At $155 Canadian, The Macallan Sienna - 1824 Series is worth every penny. Thank you.......allan

Amber is really good but the Sienna is almost perfect.

is rating a whisky before you've tried it. Feel free to complain all you like without rating, but some people use the ratings as a guide for what to buy. Giving 1 star because you don't like their marketing unfairly skews the average rating.
There's probably no age because it's likely a mix of different casks of different ages. Even if it's 80% 18 years and 20% 10 years, by law they can only state 10 years, so it doesn't make sense to label it and have people unfairly judge it.
That said, I have in fact sampled the Sienna and found it to be quite delicious. Fairly balanced with some good fruits, sweet, and spice. I'm knocking half a star because I can find equally good whisky for around £50.

Wow! This is definitively my favorite of the 1824 series. I opened the Ruby first, asuming that the most expesive would be the best. I was wrong. THIS is THE ONE! If someone tries to insist on age declaration, Sienna is the most similar to the Macallan 18 years old, sherry oak. Beautiful tastes & aroma mixture, not too hard, long lasting aftertaste. I love it to bits!

is calling someone stupid just because you do not agree with them

Age Statement again
I think this is a mix from different casks and ages, so no age stated. Basically, you can guess the age from the price. I mean, what age can you buy from Macallan for £64.64 ?

No Age Statement
Reviewing a whisky without tasting it and basing your one star on appearance alone. Stupidity.

Until Macallan come to the senses and return to telling consumers just how old their whisky is, I am keeping well away. At £65 a bottle I believe I am entitled to know its age - Why are Macallan hiding the ages of their whiskys?

Seeing how it was my sons first birthday I purchased a bottle based on various reviews and I will never look back, the aromas flavours and after taste that lingers with the sweetness possessed meant this will not be coming out too often, as I wish to savour every last drop!!
