Redesigned to sit atop the popular 1824 Collection, this artfully packaged Macallan Oscuro will make collectors’ eyes twinkle. The gorgeous decanter and full-grain leather pack in signature red amber certainly creates an impression, but it’s the high-end whisky itself which steals hearts.

I've been lucky enough to taste well over 100 scotches premium end through the past decade, and while I should note that I do lean towards sherried whiskies and away from peat (generally a fan of a number of bottling from Glendronach, Glenfarclas, Glenrothes, and Macallan), The Macallan Oscuro tops my list.
I've tasted it head to head with some top competition, including The Macallan 25 (which comes in at ~$500 to $1,000 more) and the Glendronach 33 year (now discontinued), which also comes in at ~$500 to $1,000 more), and while those are superb drams, the Oscuro is smoother, richer and simply more flavorsome. I've never before tasted a whisky that combines the rich depth of flavor the Oscuro has with an unreal buttery smoothness.
I'll finish by saying that whenever I've had friends taste the Oscuro, they are equally impressed (every single one). If you get the chance and you have a few $$'s to splurge on one of the best whiskies money can buy -- buy this. You won't be disappointed.
