Macallan CS red label vs. current triangle top

Postby Ardbeg311 » Fri Jul 13, 2007 5:30 pm

Tried looking this up in the various FAQ sections and through Search but couldn't find anything.

My question is this: Is the older Macallan CS "red label" (USA market) noticeably better/worse than the newer CS Macallan triangle top offering? I ask because I recently came across some of the red label bottles that were on sale for the same price as the newer edition. I am not really interested in collecting Macallan (and might concede that the Glenfarclas 105 or Aberlour abundh are better sherry cask strength bottles), just the taste between these two bottles.

As always, thanks!

Help please!

I am introducing the Macallan CS 58.2% at my An Quaich meeting on Thursday. To the best of my knowlege it is the red label.
In all my research I have unable to come up with an age on it. Does anyone know what age this one is. :?:

Cheers and many thanks in advance for the help.

Wouldn't you know it. I spent 2 nights gathering info on the Cask Strenght and when I got to the meeting I discovered that they didn't get the CS. I ended up introducing the Fine Oak 15 yr. Wasn't that taken with it.
(See my "What did you drink last night" entry)
