What goes hand in hand with Valentine's Day? A drink. I'm not saying to get in a state of drunken stupor, but a nice glass of wine, or two, is always welcome on my watch.
I recently attended an exclusive tasting of the new Macallan 1824 Series at the Shangri La. And thus, my scotch virginity was taken. The 4 part 1824 Series consist of Gold, Amber, Sienna and Ruby, each with their own unique taste. Now, as a newbie to scotch, I didn't quite know what I was getting myself into. Let's just say, I had a number of water 'chasers'.
My two favourites were Gold and Ruby, which happen to be on the opposite ends of the spectrum. Gold was slightly sweet with hints of vanilla, ginger and cinnamon, to name a few. Ruby was a tad stronger, 43% ABV with subtle tastes of nutmeg, orange and sultana.
