Macallan 18 Year Old 1979 Original Box 750ml US Import
A Macallan 18 year old exclusively matured in the finest Sherry oak casks from a 1979 distillation and originally released in 1997 for the US market.
When Macallan took over their bottling in 1980, they toyed for a few releases with more advanced age-statements of 17 and 18 years old. The 18 was deemed the optimum maturation, and the official 18 year old was launched in 1984. It is now an absolute classic of the whisky world.
"The Macallan Sherry Oak 18 Years Old forms part of our Sherry Oak range which features a series of single malt whiskies matured exclusively in hand-picked sherry seasoned oak casks from Jerez for richness and complexity. A full-bodied palate of mature oak, ginger, and raisin flavors is complemented by a light mahogany natural color."
Light mahogany. Dried fruits and ginger with hints of vanilla and cinnamon. Soft and rich, with hints of spice, clove, orange and toasted mature oak. Lingering with dried fruits, ginger and orange zest.
Outstanding, complex Single Malt, matured at The Macallan distillery for a minimum of 18 years in selected Sherry oak casks from Spain. Rich palate of dried fruits, spice, orange and wood smoke. Full-bodied, lingering, smooth, elegant and aromatic finish.
"When matured exclusively in Oloroso sherry seasoned oak casks from Jerez, Spain, our rich, fruity and full bodied ‘new make’ spirit is transformed into an iconic single malt. Once filled, the maturing spirit remains undisturbed in the same casks for 18 years and is brought together in this rich and complex single malt characterized by mature oak, ginger and raisin flavors.
With an unflinching commitment to put sherry casks at the heart of The Macallan single malt, our reputation for the extraordinary is testament to the exceptional oak casks in which we mature our spirit. Sourced, crafted, toasted and seasoned under the watchful eye of The Macallan Master of Wood, these hand-picked casks are delivered to the demanding specifications of The Macallan Master Distiller and his team."
