    Guys, you fool! Only 86. And that, of course, is not worth $ 500!

  2. Scoochscotch scored this whisky 87 points Newbie

    This is one of the all time classics. I have had a bottle of this every year since 1997. Over the years it has changed slightly, but always a quality dram. My only complaint as of late is the lower quality sherry caskings than even 8 years ago. Almost like there is more refill than first fill. This scotch deserves to be priced at about $150. $200 or more and you might as well move up to Rare cask which is a much better dram.
    • Nose
      Wonderful fruits. Hard to beat Mac 18 nose.
    • Taste
      Buttery smooth. Fruits.
    • Finish
      medium and would be better if it was bottled at 46%

  3. maltaholic scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    A very intense Sherrynote, heavy, mature, old, fantastic.
    A light spiciness hovers over the glass, pickled fruits.

    Creamy, soft in the mouth.
    The oak makes itself felt.
    A wonderful barrel.
    I only marvel venerably.
    Sherry, oak, vanilla. That's it ...

    Great!

  7. PEATYBOI scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Ginger. Raisins. Cinnamon. Oak. Just like what the box says. But for a Macallan 18, these are delivered in a disappointing fashion. A highly commercialised product. Medium bodied, weak finish, and very 'smooth'. Mediocre dram.
