• 56 bottles of beer on the wall...

    Hey Nancy!

    What age is that one...?

    It doesn't say. In fact when I looked it up on the internet they claim to be no longer giving that information and according to https://www.thewhiskyexchange.com/p/18098/macallan-gold (and I quote);

    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.

    According to the label on the bottle;

    EXCLUSIVELLY MATURED IN OAK SHERRY CASKS FROM JEREZ, SPAIN

    Very good stuff and comparable to 12 year old Glenlivet and was only slightly more expensive, roughly ten dollars Canadian difference. Given that I'd be inclined to return to tradition and purchase the 12 year old Glenlivet next time. I am guesstimating that won't be happening for at least another year from now given that I still have the 15 year old for the 2018-01-01 cybertoast ... and probably beyond.

    I'll be using one of the sampler Glenmorangies

    Excellent.

    Life is good,
    Maurice

    Ah... so, a bottling from a variety of ages... probably more of the
    younger end than the older, to have it be essentially approximately a
    10yo... Interesting that they say the 10yo Fine Oak bottling is now
    defunct... that's the one I finally finished off this year... ;)

    Must be enough of the 15yo to mellow it out... and little enough of it
    that it doesn't command a premium price... ;)

    Given that I'd be inclined to return to tradition and purchase the 12
    year old Glenlivet next time. I am guesstimating that won't be
    happening for at least another year from now given that I still have
    the 15 year old for the 2018-01-01 cybertoast ... and probably beyond.

    The Gold can help you space out the 15yo... ;)

    It would appear that Macallan changed their mind about replacing the
    age-stated bottlings with the colour-coded... or at least haven't fully implemented it.... I just bought this year a 12yo Macallan, which I
    haven't opened yet... first I had to finish off the 10yo Fine Oak, and
    then I was given the leftover sampler bottles in September...

    I'll be using one of the sampler Glenmorangies

    Excellent.

    And indeed it was... :) I have left about a half-shot of the 10yo Glenmorangie Original, and the same of the 12yo Quinta Rubin... it might
    be interesting to mix the two for the upcoming toast... perhaps it will
    be similar to the Macallan Gold.. ;)
