The Macallan 18 year old 2016
One of the true great Single Malts! After a brief time away the Macallan 18 year old has returned, now with the vintage not of when it was distilled, but when it was bottled. Presumably to make it easier to control their stock levels so as not have the same problems repeat themselves. This also makes this wonderful single malt even more collectable than it was before, guaranteeing each year to be a limited release.
Ginger and orange peel straight away on the nose. Good to see Macallan has not lost its signature notes. Sweet sherry oak and plum pudding on the palate with a oaky finish full with treacle.
