The Macallan Ruby

The jewel in the crown of The Macallan's 1824 Series is erm, a Ruby! With the darkest hue in a no age statement range where colour is king, Ruby has spent the longest time in only the very finest sherry casks. The colour has been taken on naturally with no artificial colouring.

This bottle was part of a private collection - if you'd like more detailed photos just get in touch!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

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.

All timer ...
One of The best whisky I ever tasted. Lucky for me that I have two bottles. I hope that they sell it again.

Better than the 18 Sherry Cask
Lovely nose. As smooth as it gets. A Macallan of old. Very under rated.

It's one of the most gentle whiskies I have ever tried. It's even much better than great 18 yo.

For sherry fans - not for peat junkies
What can we learn from the posting of the Islay fan drama queen? If you are complete Islay fan and you need a kick from your whisky, then don't drink Macallan Ruby. I just love Sherry cask-finished whiskies. And the Macallan Ruby is an outstanding whisky if it comes to matured in Sherry casks. Unfortunately I cannot compare the Ruby to the others of the Macallan sherry oak expressions. In comparison to Glentauchers and Aberlour the Macallan Ruby is my favorite. The surmise about the mixed ages ranges from 10yo to 15yo.

Junk in a pretty package
OK first a disclaimer...I am an Islay fan. I like scotch that hits you and you respect it by sipping slowly. I like complexity and rich, viscous liquid. This Ruby bottle is none of the above and absolute garbage. Forgot even the price, it has zero complexity, no kick, and you might as well be drinking sherry because the sweetness is like syrup. I have 7/8 of a bottle that may hit the sink. I can see why this was discontinued so fast.

Very sherry. A definite mix of young whiskies though.
I am a Macallan fan. The 18 yr sherry oak & 25 yr sherry oak are my favourites. Not to forget the epic 10yr cask strength and the 12 year Gran reserva. Having tasted such Macallans, reading the reviews of the 1824 series has been quite disappointing. I dint bother to try until recently when the duty free had a 20% discount on pre-order.
The Ruby is certainly not as great as the Macallan 18. But its still is an outstanding whisky. The first fill sherry casks stand out. Quite exceptional. A sweetness appears when it touches the palate but soon disappears. There should be some young whiskies to make it 'intense'. On the nose, it is a sherry bomb. Cinnamon, mild orange flavour & dry fruits. The finish is long but lacks the 'signature Macallan' finish. Adding a drop or two of water doesn't make it any better. Good one but not as great as the other Macallans but I paid 35% less than the Macallan 18 sherry oak & therefore I find it good.

Not for those wanting easy drinking
If you want easy drinking then this is not for you. If you want spice, smokey, and bite then go for it.

Fantastic, liquid gold
With the hefty price tag to just have a dram. One of the most wonderful flavours I have ever experienced!
