The second is really something only those who have acquired the taste for scotch will appreciate. The Macallan distilleries have come out with a new way of branding their single malts. Normally associated with ages (12 years old, 15, 18, 25, etc.), the 1824 series is marketed by its colour. Going from Gold, Amber, Sienna and finally Ruby, they gain a deeper luster as one increases in price. After a bit of research, I went with the Amber for my first try, and I must say this is a treat to drink. The nose is abundant, the palate a little less than expected, yet a nice finish to round it out.
Of course, combining these two sights together only makes the whole greater than the sum of the parts!
