The Macallan 18yr Speymalt 1998

  • Distiller:


  • Bottler:

    Gordon & MacPhail

  • ABV:


  • Age:

    18 Years

  • Price:
  • Intro:

    This was a whiskey I enjoyed blind while I reviewed it live on the Whiskey Network Discord server.

  • Nose:

    Funky, musty, fruits. Mud. Oak. Cocoa, toffee, sugary butterscotch. Apple crisp. Sourdough bread.

  • Taste:

    Medium mouth feel, sweet. Dole fruit syrup. Really sweet. Faint heat. Confectioners sugar, vanilla cream. Apple pie. Pears. Faint lemon lime zest. Really creamy, almost some buttered popcorn.

  • Finish:

    Short, not super rich, but sweet and fruity. Faint oak structure here, lightly effervescent. Some bittering with time. No real smoke, brine or pepper. Faint plastic. Sweet, faint sulfur.

  • Overall:

    Delightful, complex and plenty going on here. This does very well for an Independent Bottling of Macallan, whom are known for generally only letting their off profile or sub par casks go out the door.

  • Score:
