Macallan 25 Sherry
Superlative Speysider from Macallan, this astonishing 25 year old is one of the most revered whiskies in the world. It received a perfect 100 out of 100 score from the Beverage Testing Institute in Chicago, 1999. It also received a Gold at the International Spirits Challenge.
In stock, worldwide delivery available.
Can be dispatched within 24 hours.
Nose: Very fruity, with notes of orange and pear on the nose. Also has a good dollop of sweet spices which develop into an almost smoky character. The sherry on the nose is refined and well balanced, with hints of honey and caramel.
Palate: Textbook malt delivery which gives way to a mouthful of dried apricots, prunes and figs. Hints of nutmeg and cinnamon weave in and out of an epic whack of honey that only a Speyside distillery of this kind of nobility can produce.
Finish: A long, full finish that carries fig, spices, chewy oak and a touch of light smoke.
I bought bottles of 25 year old Macallan in the 1980's for no more than £47 per bottle. Even taking into account inflation, this is a ludicrous price for this whisky.

Wonderful. Good nose and pallet. Smooth Finish. Highly recommended. I emphasize smooth and very satisfying. Great stuff. Very special.

Price is too high
Crap Now What
I have seriously considered getting one bottle of Mac 25 s.o. However considering the price.... I could have gone for : Mac 18 s.o + old pulteney 21&17+ kavalan Sherry oak+aberlour 18 + a set of 6 glencairn glasses.
Based on this alone, I don't understand anyone buying a bottle of this instead of the above.

I was handed a glass at a work party, "here, try this scotch." Nose unexpected, tongue wow, finish complex....what the heck am I drinking?? The bar keep holds up the Macallan 25. "Oh I see." This is the best whisky I have ever had the pleasure of tasting. Only one problem now; how can a return to the mortal realm of my usual dram? $850 a bottle is a tough sale to the wife but I know there is something I can bribe her with so find me in a week and I may share.

Put it this way, you can't drink money. You can't eat it, and it at the end of the day it's just paper. If there is any question in your mind weather or not this is worth the money, I'm here to tell you it is. This is my second bottle and the flavor that I get with this of mellowed sherry, and sublime perfectly aged oak is better than any other liquor I've ever tasted. Sure there's the $2,000+ cognacs and all that, but this is better than all of that stuff. Forget the Louis tre and all that other stuff. Buy a bottle of this, have a dram every 3-4 months, share it with friends when they really love scotch, and every 16 months invest in it again. For some of the best stuff on earth, $850 - $1200 is well worth the price.

On a Pale Horse
So it is said Death rides in. What is not noted is that he is drinking The MacAllen. This is why he is never in a hurry.

I have been collecting and drinking very old and good cognac in the pass 4 years, and also wine for the pass 12 years.
Recently, I started to consume single malt whisky because of some good friends recommendations. I have tried as many
Whisky as when I can or even comparing 6 difference bottles at one time. But, nothing I drank earns my heart of perfection. Until a night, a friend of mine pour a glass of whisky for me for blind taste. When I smell it, my heart started to open. When I drank it, I tell myself that this is what I am hunting for. It is maccallen 25 sherry oak! For money wise, if you
Can spend, get as many as you can find before it is getting much more expensive.

I've seen this referenced in movies, however, never would I think to be drinking a glass...let alone two glasses in one sitting. Nevertheless, I was fortunate enough to have a friend working the high-limit slots at the Bellagio who comped me at the bar. His words, "anything you want bro". So I asked the bartender if he had a choice to drink anything at the bar, what would it be? Without hesitation, he said "Macallan 25". I asked how much a pour was, he said "$125". "Damn", I said, "let's run this!" The nose was very fruity with notes of orange and pear. I couldn't wait to have this hit my palate!!! There was a hint of cinnamon and nutmeg running wild baby!!! As for the finish, lovely spices with a touch of smoke. OH YEAH!!! Feeling a little guilty, I said, can I get a glass of 18 year Macallan. He instantly replied, "you're friend is comping you, why go backwards?" And he poured me my second glass of heaven...

I have had two bottles in my lifetime and treat every dram with honour. Only can be described as "the very special tipple". We are all very lucky to have this 25 year old available and even better if we have a bottle. I eventually bought a bottle for my son this Christmas and we had a real cream on the cake when it come to after dinner tipples. The best whiskey, in my opinion. Enjoy.
