Macallan 1980 18 Year Old Scotch Whisky
Another fantastic Macallan, from their 18 Year Old vintages. This one from 1980.
For reasons not even science can wholly explain, whisky has always matured best in oak casks that have contained sherry. Due to increasing expense and scarcity, other distillers no longer insist on sherry casks. The Macallan Directors Do.
Journeying annually to the bodegas of Jerez, they buy fresh oak casks into which they pour mature, carefully chosen sherries, then keep them for two further years in Spain before having them shipped over to be filled with Whisky. The results are shown partly in The Macallan's rich golden colour, partly in the 'nose' and wholly, may we venture?, in the tumbler!
