Old royalty in the form of Macallan's iconic 18 year old Sherried single malt.
Macallan 18 was tasted at Meeting No. 41 on October 29, 2015. Out of 5, we rated it very highly at 3.90. Macallan 18 ranks 7th overall in Scotch. Costing $180, this spirit is expensive, but worth it.
You minx! You are back. I lost my whisky cherry to you all those many years ago. I almost forgot about you - but we all know that could never happen. Welcome back, me.
Smells sweet. Am I about to eat candy? No, but the taste is much sweeter than other spirits I've tried tonight. Dark cherry, almond, vanilla are the flavor I get. I love this, tastes great and I could drink it every day.
You easily taste the talk about it. Delicious for sure! I would fill my flask, sneak it into the office and risk being fired to taste this whole bored at work. However, given the price point it will continue to be a desired bottle for the home.
Earthy nose - dried cherries. Big mouthful, rich, leathery, balanced.
On the nose this one is pretty subtle, surprisingly. Definitely more bold than I was thinking, but very clean and quaffable. Really lovely finish nice and barrely
It's good, but for the price there are better options. Warm, nutty, almost burnt notes in the taste. Nice finish.
