The Macallan Sienna… Sweet, spicy, sensational!!
Sienna is part of The Macallan 1824 series – no age statement- alongside Gold, Amber and Ruby. I was introduced to my new favourite whisky on my very first visit to The Macallan last month.
I’ve honestly not tasted a whisky like it! Intense character and full of flavour.
Notes: chocolate orange, fruity, apricots, raisins, vanilla and a touch of spice.
I was in Speyside for an overnight stay, in prep for a photography shoot at the spiritual home of The Macallan the following morning…. a 4.30am start! yip.. you heard me… a 4.30am start!
We had dinner the night before at the Copper Dog- a fantastic wee place in Craigellachie (built in 1893)- steeped in history with a modern twist. It’s cosy, quirky and well worth the visit. As you walk in you are presented with 900 whiskies sitting proudly on the wall…
What one would you pick??
If you’re ever in Craigellachie… go there! The food is amazing as well.. Remember to book. It’s extremely popular…
Anyway, 4.30am the following morning…. Along with the social media agency and photographer Dan Rubin, the day was spent capturing Easter Elchies house, the spiritual home of the Macallan.
Here’s a few of my own snaps… Check the size of the big Daddy Macallan bottle!
It’s an amazing place… there is something mystical about it.
I love everything The Macallan brand stands for… its commitment to exceptional quality, its hunger for innovation and constantly striving to go beyond the ordinary.
It really is extraordinary! 🙂
