Macallan 18 Year Old Sherry Oak Cask From Jerez 1985 (750ml) with Tube (MC)

What is the secret of this Legendary Single Malt? Since time Immemorial, The Macallan has been distilled by Craftsmen on the same estate in particularly small, Hand Beaten Copper Stills and, whilst Other Distillers no longer insist on using Oaken sherry casks, at Macallan this Costly Tradition is maintained. The Results are shown partly in The Macallan's Sumptuous Colour, partly in the 'Nose' and Wholly, may we venture?, in the Glass. Its preminence is perennially Confirmed in 'blind' tastings of the Finest Malt Whiskies, where The Macallan is Time and Again accorded the Supreme Laurel in its category, befitting the Definitive Dictum on the Macallan, ...The Single Malt Against which Ultimately all the others must be judged.'

The Macallan Distillery is probably one of the most famous brands in the whisky industry today. The distillery is three miles from Craigellachie which is the heart of the Speyside region. Even though Macallan is located in the heart of Speyside they have labeled it a Highland malt. The distillery was founded in 1824 and was named the ‘Elchies Distillery’. Macallan has 8 wash stills and 18 spirit stills and produces around 8,000,000 litres a year. In 2001 Macallan opened up a new visitor center. The tour that Macallan provides is very in depth and is great if you are just starting out and learning all about whisky. It shows all the processes and the maturation all the way down to microscopic slides so you can understand what happens. It is worth visiting.

The early to mid 80s bottlings of the 18yo Macallans tend to show a much gamier, meatier profile with notes of nuts, chocolate, pin sharp hints of gunpowder, flints, stewed and dried fruits and lots of classic sherry intensity. Super soft and typically luxurious in style.
