Following the launch of The Macallan M in 2013, Reflexion and No.6 single malts have joined the 1824 Masters Series – a luxury extension of the initial colour-focused 1824 series consisting of Gold, Amber, Sienna, and Ruby expressions.

Both expressions sit below The Macallan M – said to be the “pinnacle” of the 1824 range.

The Macallan Reflexion, bottled at 43% abv and costing £900, has been aged in first-fill hogshead casks and is described as a “celebration” of floral whisky flavours with notes of vanilla, apple and apricot.

Meanwhile, The Macallan No.6, bottled at 43% abv and costing £2,800, has been aged in Sherry oak casks and bottled in a crystal decanter by Lalique, embodying a similar triangular design to The Macallan M.

“The new 1824 Masters Series represents an extremely exciting development for The Macallan,” said Ken Grier, director of malts at Edrington, owner of The Macallan.

“The stunning designs and overall imprint of this new collection are not only worthy of some of our most complex and precious single malt whiskies, they celebrate the very foundations that make The Macallan so special – our glorious range of natural colour and the outstanding quality of our casks .”

When The Macallan M was launched in 2013, Edrington revealed it had invested £16 million in Spanish oak over the year.

The Macallan’s master of wood, Stuart MacPherson, said: “Wood sits at the very heart of what we do at The Macallan and this range further demonstrates the vital role of our casks in the production of these superb whiskies.

“Our commitment to sherry seasoned oak casks is unquestionable and the Masters Series showcases The Macallan at its very best.”
