The Macallan Unveils Innovative 1824 Series
The 1824 Series will showcase two of our greatest strengths; oak sherry casks and natural colour. Committed to sourcing the very best oak sherry casks, The 1824 Series will showcase the signature style of The Macallan, embracing the defining elements which have made it one of the world's truly great single malts.
Our very own Whisky Maker, Bob Dalgarno, has created four expressions by identifying the natural colour formed during maturation in different cask types to create the character inspired by these colours. The expressions are Gold, Amber, Sienna and Ruby, all names reflecting the actual colour of the whiskies in the range, but also describing naturally occurring minerals and metals.
This approach to whisky making is the first to create a final character from the natural colours drawn into The Macallan from the oak sherry casks over the years of maturation. Bob has assessed the broadest range of casks, which have delivered an unrivalled range of natural colours.
The casks chosen for the range will deliver a gradation of colour from light to dark. The character of the wood defines each expression's flavour, moving from lighter, lemon citrus to richer, dried fruit notes. As the whiskies become darker and richer, the pool of casks able to deliver this character becomes smaller and rarer.
The UK will be the first market to take the new range with the launch of Gold in Autumn 2012, exclusively for 6 months. France will follow early in 2013. The 1824 Series will then roll out in Europe and Canada plus key emerging territories in Central and Eastern Europe, Latin America and Africa from Spring 2013.

Ja, det indlæg ser ud til at have indeholdt nogen special-tegn som mit konverteringsprogram ikke har været alt for glad for, her er hvad du skrev:
The protected regions are
(a) Highland, comprising that part of Scotland that is north of the line dividing the Highland region from the Lowland region; Lowland, comprising that part of Scotland that is south of the line dividing the Highland region from the Lowland region; and Speyside, comprising (i) the wards of Buckie, Elgin City North, Elgin City South, Fochabers Lhanbryde, Forres, Heldon and Laich, Keith and Cullen and Speyside Glenlivet of the Moray Council as those wards are constituted in the Moray (Electoral Arrangements) Order 2006(b); and (ii) the Badenoch and Strathspey ward of the Highland Council as that ward is constituted in the Highland (Electoral Arrangements) Order 2006(c).
(Derudover opererer SWA også med to beskyttede lokaliteter, Campbeltown og Islay)
Jeg skal nok undersøge om der er flere indlæg der har lidt samme skæbne.
