The Macallan Ruby Bottling Note

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.

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.

User Reviews of the Macallan Ruby - 1824 Series


I've been trying to find this bottle for a while. I had forgotten that I have two sample bottles two tucked away in my closet. It was a nice pour, but not what I excepted. I already ordered me a bottle. I still stand by my "GLENLIVET."

I've read this a few times, so I'll just add to the noise: Rather synthetic. Well-engineered to do what sherry is supposed to, but lacks artisanal depth (-1 star). Stupidly overpriced subtracts 2 stars. Rather go for the Balblair 90, Glendronach 18yo or Glenfarclas 17yo. Sorry Macallan, but I know you can do better.

Very pleasing to taste... That's it

The first time I tasted this I absolutely loved it.. That was back before I had really developed my palate and my standard for excellence didn't go past Johnny walker black, and laphroaig quarter cask. Now a year and a half + 39 different scotches tried including the macallan 18 I have come to the realization that it has failed completely in that it doesn't have complexity, it tastes like it was created by a team of chemical engineers for the next generation of idiots who would rather have a scotch that compares more to spiced rum than it does to the beauty of a scotch that spends decades of maturation to gain the natural complexity, and balance that make all the wonderful tasting notes tie together into something worth reverence.

The answer to overwhelmimg demand

Its a vers rich and full sherry whiskey. I would assume a mixture of relatively young first fill sherry and some bourbon and elder first fill sherry casks to add some depth.
But for that price there has to be more.
It tastes synthetic, the taste is constructed to sherryness, and lacks the depth and richness of the older macallans.
No age statement as a way to make as much money as possible as quick as possible out of good, but not excellent whisky. Misses character, just shows off with sherry... But nothing behind it.

Overpriced, over rated

Color doesn't tell you anything about the whisky. this is just A way to Sell immature overpriced whisky which is very much the case with this one. you can get much better stuff for the same price. go for age statement whiskeys then you have a much better idea what kind of Quality is in the bottle

This is an incredible single malt scotch whisky. Tastes of vanilla and cherries and absolutely smooth.
The colour has an incredible ruby hue.

I tried this after my Dad bought a bottle for himself. It's one of the smoothest scotch single malts I have ever had. In my opinion it's not got the complexities of a Glenlivet 15 or 21 yo but instead very easy drinking with loads of flavour from the sherry cask. The colour is immense too. I would definitely consider a bottle of this if I was looking to spend £100+ on a bottle. I've scored this a 10 as I have no criticisms.

A more refined taste

Really easy drinking straight out of the bottle. Deep sherry flavor but less viscous than the 12 or 18. At about $200 with shipping it's steep, but when has Macallan ever been cheap. It's a great dram by any standard. Easy drinking with a complex notes of sherry wood, fruits, and almost a cherry liquor finish. Just buy one. You know you want it.

I live in Seattle and received my order in 2 days. 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!
