Nose: Sweet notes of toffee and custard tarts balanced by some fresh green-apple skin.
Palate: Cinnamon, raisins, baked apples, panna cotta. Quite rich and weighty.
Finish: Smooth, rich and clean.
Macallan Gold was released in late 2012 as part of a series of colour-themed bottlings introduced to replace the distillery's age-statement expressions. Produced from 9-15yo first fill and refill sherry casks, it was designed to sit between the now-defunct 10yo Sherry Oak and 10yo Fine Oak bottlings.
