Macallan Gran Reserva 18 Year Old 1980 Japanese Import (MC)
MC500-068*

Single Highland Malt Scotch Whisky. Regarded as the best of the highly-sought-after Gran Reserva series released. Matured in Sherry Wood. Now comes the 1980 Gran Reserva, of which even fewer barrels exist: Only enough whisky was available to bottle 1,100 cases. And like its predecessor, this vintage has superseded all others in character, body, and individuality.
Distilled in 1980 at the Macallan Distillery. Bottled in 1999. Japanese Import. Obtained by LoveScotch.com

Macallan

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.


1980 Gran Reserva is heavy on citrus, leaning toward spicy dried fruits with raisin overtones. This combination melds with an almost oily, resin like texture that receives an elegant polish of oak and vanilla from the wood. And unlike the 1979, the 1980 offers a hint of peat, which can be found in the very long, rich, and slightly dry finish.
