The Macallan Sienna - 1824 Series

Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship The Macallan Sienna - 1824 Series to you in United States at the moment. We're working on a solution, but until then, here are some alternatives:

The Macallan Sienna Bottling Note

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.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

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.

Macallan Sienna - 1824 Series Reviews

An all-time favourite. Leagues above Gold and Amber.

If you're considering getting the Gold or Amber of the collection (which are fine), just stop right there and spend the extra few dollars on Sienna. The added complexity and deepness of this whisky is worth every penny. Maybe the best dollar-for-dollar Scotch I've ever had, a better price to quality than Ruby (in my opinion).

Loved it at the 1st sip.

The aroma it leaves in the room got na wife approves drinking

Well worth the 5 stars.
A good one for collectors.

25th January 2020

Great tast

Wow!! have had many various whiskeys, medium to top of the line (for a middle class person)

Just really the best for my income.

My Doctor told me to try the BRAND, never going to leave. Glenfiddich 12 gone from my life

One of the most underrated whiskies

This is a dangerously drinkable whisky, vanilla, toffee apple, mandarin, gingerbread biscuits, sherry, oak, warming like a glengoyne 21, no sulphur,
I’m not a macallan fan but I love this whisky. I grabbed 8 bottles to drink later on when they were £65, a steal at that price, don’t be put off by nas snobs and grab a bottle before it’s too late, I’ve had all the editions so far (1,2,3,4) and I prefer this, also prefer this to the rare cask.
My favourites would be the rare cask black, ruby and 18 sherry, they are amazing, stay away from the fine oak series, glengoyne 15 will do it better for cheaper and glenfarclas 17 better than this? Lol maybe if you like old library and pencil shaving flavours but I prefer a quality taste, only letdown to this whisky is the finish could be longer but 5 stars at this price point.

Daylight Robbery

On Amazon this is £168 including p&p...this is probably a 15-18 year old whisky...extortionate price!!!!Will never visit the distillery due to over-rated whiskies they sell.The Macallan...everything that is wrong with a snobby whisky brand!!!!!😤

12th February 2019


Not bad this one but overpriced.Quite nice toffee flavours and rather smooth,but for nearly £80 you can get a Glenfarclas 17,which is miles better!

22nd December 2017


Oh my, this was just a very pleasant experience. So easy to drink, no chaser necessary. Very sweet aroma assails the nose as it is opened and poured. Has a sweet vanilla/floral taste to it. Highly recommended.

1st December 2017


Quite good this one..but not the gateway to 18 Fine Oak..which is £175!!What is Horst thinking..good flavours and smoothness for £66 though!!😎

12th November 2017

Smooth Sienna

Nice toffee..vanilla flavours in this Macallan..gateway to Fine Oak 18...i dont think so..and 18 Fine Oak..3 times the price.Nice warming mothfeel and not bad for £66 actually!😎

12th November 2017

Very Tasty

Lovely tasting Macallan this one,and for £66 rather good value.Cinnamon,Toffee,Apple,Honey......very nice dram...not the usual vastly overpriced Macallan!

I am starting to distrust Jim Murray's opinion on matters of whisky.

Otroligt spritig. Minst 15 år för ung.

Surprisingly Complex

This is actually my favorite non-$400-per-bottle whisky. Relatively sweet, but with much more complexity than you would expect from either the initial taste or the nose- it just opens up beautifully.

Don't be afraid of a good No Age Statement whisky- nobody likes a snob, and you are only cheating yourself.

4th May 2017


May be the best shot I have ever had. Pricy but worth it!

21st October 2016

Superb Malt

This expression is so good!
Extremely mouth watering. Flavor is intense, but the alcohol note is not rough. Sherry, milk chocolate, vanilla, melted mascabado sugar, red dark fruits.... My God

11th August 2016

The best all-around Mac

Just noticed one reviewer below saying selling a drink based solely off its colour is misleading and that they have put colouring in the whisky. Tut tut he/she clearly hasn't been reading the box and clearly doesn't know there Mac's as Macallan never use colouring in there whisky, there all natural colouring from the barrels and aging process.
This is a perfect example of a Macallan and all Macallan's age very well compared to some other whisky's that take a lot longer to get the desired result there for command a higher price and yes there are some great drams out there but it wont have Macallan's style !. There unique !!!

29th July 2016

The great pretender!

Nice try Macallan - pretends to be a refined sherry casked whisky but can't hide its youth. Buy all the 12 yo sherry cask whilst you can! ...and of course anything older you can afford. There are always G&M's Speymalt Macallans that look and taste like great value alternatives to "factory" bottlings.
I write this having tried everything up to the 25 yo sherry cask, and with 2 bottles of 30 yo in storage, so am a Macallan fan, but just can't see the cynical new marketing justifying the huge premiums over better and smaller distilleries' offerings.
By the way, just visited the distillery a few days back - the place is like a massive building site and looks like hell - no romance left and has more in common with a lager brewery. Another reason to think about Balvenie and similar.

Best sherried dram I tasted.

1st June 2016


Had a few drams of this at a private tasting recently and was very pleasantly surprised. Very sherried flavour, great finish. Only 4 stars instead of 5 because of price. When I found out the price, I have had other, similarly great whisky for less money.

18th May 2016

My toilet really enjoyed it...

First time in my life I can't finish a dram... But I'm glad to see that Macallan's standards for NAS hasn't changed... Another typical overpriced, harsh and very young jewel.

25th February 2016

best of all

Good one

12th February 2016

One of the best.

Nicely ballanced with a long aftertaste. All the right flavours. Bottle did not survive very long in my cabinet. Time for a new one.

30th December 2015

One of the best.

Nicely ballanced with a long aftertaste. All the right flavours. Good value.

30th December 2015


Das Sienna ist ne Hammer. Ich will nichts mehr anders, Suchtgefahr.

28th December 2015


Amber is really good but the Sienna is almost perfect.

17th December 2015

bad aftertaste

Tastes very good at first except that it feels like it has a higher ABV than it actually has (a sign that it is not very old?), still pretty smooth. The nose and aftertaste are not very good.
If you are looking to replace the now expensive The Macallan 18 sherry cask, look elsewhere, or at least buy a sample before you get a bottle.


10th December 2015


Can't help but agree with the previous reviewer who says this is the best of the no age statements. If not on absolute terms then at least on dollar for taste terms.

4th November 2015

Delivers on everything it promises

Very smooth, full bodied without being to complex. Love the feeling on my tongue when i first sip it.

27th September 2015

Great Mac dram at the right price

awesome taste with the familiar Mac profile....delicious and aside from the Fine Oak 17 and regular 18 this is my new fave!

26th April 2015

Best of the no age statement series

Of all the four new no age Macallans this is the best value for the money one.
Still missing the character and unique flavor of the old 18 year old, its better than the 12 year sherry at equal or lower Price. The only 1824 I would recommend.

22nd April 2015

Misleading, overrated

to Sell whiskey based on the color is highly misleading, they could put anything in the bottle which is why they do it, everything you need to know should be unbelievable most important of which is the age

2nd January 2015


This is a fantastic whisky and worth the price tag. I tried Gold earlier in the year and it wasn't good, but Sienna has brought me back to The Macallan. I will be buying more of this in future.

29th November 2014


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.

1st September 2014

Best whiskey ever

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

28th June 2014

1824's Best

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.

21st June 2014

Now THIS is The Macallan.

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

20th May 2014


Amber is really good but the Sienna is almost perfect.

28th March 2014


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.

4th January 2014

Age statement and taste

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!

25th November 2013


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

2nd November 2013

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 ?

28th October 2013

Bogus Reviews

Reviewing a whisky without tasting it and basing your one star on appearance alone. Stupidity.

20th October 2013

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 £65 a bottle I believe I am entitled to know its age - Why are Macallan hiding the ages of their whiskys?

30th September 2013


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!!

25th June 2013

Full bodied stunner

At a recent tasting I found this to be my favourite of all the new Macallan 1824 expressions. Pipped the Amber with it's smoothness and the Ruby with it's finish - for me, this is the one.
