The Macallan 1824 Series Sienna Single Malt Whisky
Liquid Gold awarded by Jim Murray with 94.5 points
Opens with a subtle vanilla nose, persistent yet not overpowering. Orange elbows its way in, turning zesty and sharp, though tempering green apples add freshness and balance. Next come white chocolate truffles, chewy, sumptuous, with elegant oak notes for a digestif.
Dates, figs and raisins lead, then defer to nutmeg and ginger with a hint of oranges and apples, before vanilla returns in majesty.
The final fanfare is gentle, smooth and warming.
