The Macallan Ruby is the fourth expression in the 1824 series. Without an age statement and bottled at 43% ABV, Ruby is matured in first fill Spanish oak sherry casks.
The nose is quite young and sticky with lovely sherry tones and a mix of fruits and oak. A great combination of sweet fruits and spicy oak notes.
An oak spiciness with some fresh fruitiness. Some hints of pepper and vanilla.
A long and full finish with some spiciness from the oak(I think) and some sweet sherry.
The Ruby from Macallan is my personal favourite in the 1824 series. It’s a lovely sherried dram with an almost perfect balance between the sweet sherried fruitmix and the spicy pepper notes. A dram I would highly recommend. We are happy to give The Macallan Ruby 90 points.
