The scotch kings introduced the Macallan 1824 series last week. The series will categorize scotch no longer by year but by color: Gold, Amber, Sienna and Ruby. Meaning that age is no longer a factor.
To us, it seems like an excuse to bottle younger whiskey and sell them at an increased price but Macallan claims it’s a move that will allow them to experiment with different casks and distilling techniques.
What do you think?
