The Macallan 18 Year Old 1995
When you get a The Macallan whisky which still has an age statement on it you know it's either from their older stock or from their rarer ranges and thats the case with this The Macallan 18 Year Old 1995.
Distilled in 1995 this cracker of a sherried dram is everything about the character of The Macallan, hugely fruity and spicy.
Many thanks to The Whisky Shop for the sample (via the W-Club tasting panel)
the first thing that hits is a huge amount of dried fruit, there's raisins and sultanas and some sweet prunes in there too, a touch of tarte rhubarb and a gentle amount of gym shoe rubber add to the mix along with some mixed citrus peel and furniture polish.
warming and silky, prune juice and fresh ginger cake with raisins and sultanas with a hint of victoria sponge cake and demerera sugar.
silky smooth, lots of fruit peel, touches of prune juice
