Whisky Reviews for Macallan 18-year-old
7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.66 points
- Sweet, flowery a bit citric. Macallan should have stayed with the 12yo from the 90's. way much better
- Has some variety of aromas and is definitely more complex than the 12yo or 15yo of the Fine Oak series - however, it will not make it into my list of favorite Macallans
Malty and fruity, green apples, green bananas
Oily and smooth, white pepper, a tad bitter wood notes, little sweetness and fruitiness
Medium long, zesty
- A lovely sweet fruity but warm Macallan
Fruity (lychee, kiwi, citrus), slightly malty, touch of caramel and develops over time very well with lovely sweet sherry notes.
Full, mellow, woody, spicy (nutmeg), sweet, Tobacco.
Warm, spicy (nutmeg), fruity
The wine is beautifully matured, making it clear in the aroma that it is not a young whisky. Sweet, a mixture of honey, red-cheeked figs and dates, as well as wood, malt and chocolate, all eventually sprinkled with cinnamon. (90 b)
Tastefully it is quite successful to follow on to a very promising vuni, but not without minor defects, where I rank somewhat more influence of woodiness, and when I am severely rigid, there is also a hint of bitterness in the flavor, but there is only a bad thing. Otherwise, chocolate, spices and honey. (86 b)
- Smoky sweet floral notes in the nose. Soft drink and a bit dry. Zitrisfruchtiger long finish.
