The Macallan Malt Scotch 18 Year Old is a Sherry Oak that is matured in Spanish oak casks before being handcrafted and seasoned with sherry in Spain. That 18-year-minimum maturation leads to a classic Macallan taste: rich notes of dried fruits, spices, orange and chocolate.
The initial aroma hits your nose with the same sweet dried fruits and spices of ginger and sherry that create a winey and oaky scent in the Macallan 12 Year Old Scotch. Once that aroma expands, hints of cinnamon, cocoa, vanilla, honey, marzipan, molasses and treacle come through.
When this 18 Year Old hits your palate, however, a half dozen more years of maturity create a richer flavor that is still sweet, creamy and deliciously smooth. The flavor then also evolves midpalate with deep intensity thanks to a nutty, buttery, bacon fat-like smooth taste with the beginnings of rancio.
Macallan 18 Year Scotch can be enjoyed the way all malt scotches are meant to be enjoyed: straight, with water or over ice. Flavors this bold don’t need to be mixed. Pair this scotch with a filet mignon or other fine meat with rich flavor. It’s the perfect scotch to celebrate your next special occasion. We also offer free shipping on this Macallan scotch for all orders over $250.
