Macallan 18 Year Old Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

SKU #620010 92 points Wine Enthusiast

 This Speyside single malt is matured in Sherry oak casks from Jerez, Spain, for a minimum of 18 years. The amber spirit has a big, warm caramel flavor, finishing with a touch of sweet honey, bitter chocolate and espresso on the lingering finish. Viscous, creamy mouthfeel. (KN)  (12/2011)

 Macallan's 18 year old expression is, for me, the highlight of its regular sherried range. Deep amber in color. The nose is rich and heavily fruited: fruit cake, mulberry, a little moist gingerbread, the bloody depths of molasses. On the palate, dried fruits — more figgy than raisined — while the natural oiliness in the spirit balances the boisterous tannins from the European oak. A singed note on the finish (an extension of the molasses?) completes the picture. Balanced and complex. (DB, Fall 2011)

K&L Notes

The Macallan's benchmark excellence is nowhere more evident than in the 18 year old, which is matured for a minimum of 18 years in seasoned sherry casks. Classic Macallan, with aromas and flavors of dried apricots and figs, spice, chocolate and orange zest.

Here is the Rolls-Royce of single malt. Not everybody needs a Rolls-Royce--some people dream of one, others detest the idea of luxury for luxury's sake. Nonetheless, Macallan has built a reputation over the last half century for producing the finest sherried malts on the planet. Geeks will argue about whether that's still the case, but no one can deny that this is top-notch stuff. When you buy Mac 18, you're making a lifestyle choice. That's why I call it a "message malt." It sends a strong message no matter what you're trying to say.

This scotch, while expensive, is worth every penny. The balance is precise and the smoothness of the mouthfeel makes enjoying this spirit a delightful experience. The finish is long and smooth with hints of caramel and toasted almond, a luxury addition to your home bar to bring out on special occasions.
