The Macallan 18 Year Old 1995 Sherry Oak

(70cl, 43%)

The Macallan 18 Year Old 1995 Sherry Oak

The Macallan 18yo 1995 Bottling Note

Another vintage of The Macallan's celebrated 18 year old, matured in the finest ex-Sherry casks from Jerez. Tremendous single malt Scotch whisky from Speyside.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Classic spiced dried fruits and creamy vanilla with orange peel, crystallised ginger and apple wood.

Palate: Rum and raisin, dates, caramel and cloves alongside custard and citrus hints. Rich and satisfying.

Finish: Spices and dried fruits from the palate remain alongside warming ginger and refined oakiness.

Overall: Classic stuff from The Macallan.

Macallan 18 Year Old 1995 Sherry Oak Reviews

Best 18 year

Macallan 18 year from the 90's. Is best single malt 18 years whiskey I ever drink. It is smooth n Love after taste so rich in favor.

Good dram, but overpriced

The nose is sweet and complex.
It tastes kinda spicy. I could clearly taste the Sherry.
I would rate it 7/10 if it wasn't for the price. Macallan's marketing departement does a good job.

Could be the best offering from the 90's

I have to give Macallan credit. This 1995 bottling could be the best I've had from the 90's. Fantastic stuff.

excellent

This one is excellent and well worth the price. It is much better than the 1996 18 year old. This 18year old clearly shows the difference between the NAS Ruby and an aged sherry whisky.

Great scotch but not for the price, there's better

I finally tried the 18 last night and after warming my palate with a couple others poured a decent sample of the dram out. I nosed it for about five minutes, which was substantially better than the Macallan 10 (the only other one I've bought from them). I could nose it as aggressively as I wanted without any burning like the 10 year, though I prefer to use my German crystal champagne flutes when at home so the smell can circulate better without the nose being too close. The sherry notes were very recognizable, as well as the dried fruit tones. I finally allowed a small sample to slowly and softly saunter over my tongue, holding it in and around to get the mouth feel. While decent, I definitely like the Glengoyne 21's mouth feel more and perhaps even the Glenfiddich 15 (which I actually like a touch more than the 18), but I'll have to go back and compare. While the mouth feel was only decent, the finish made up for it. The dram came back up to my palate to linger and replace any burn with warmth, which surprised me as the 10 year's finish I find to be a bit rough, peppery with a burn not warmth. The finish lasts a decent amount, but still not as long as the Glengoyne 21s, which carries so long my partner and I find ourselves taking 10-15 minutes between sips of the delicious dram. She's actually had the Macallan 25 on numerous occasions and it has long been her favorite, but had to admit the Glengoyne 21 was comparable if not better than it. So considering the price of the Macallan and the Glengoyne, I'll be sticking with the Glengoyne 21 as its even cheaper than the Macallan 18 and substantially cheaper than the 25 ($120 online compared to about $800...no brainer). So while the Macallan is a great scotch, the Glengoyne is certainly "worth the wait" and the money
