Macallan 1968 18 Years Giovinetti, this 1968 vintage, aged for 18 years in sherry wood, was bottled for Italian importers Giovinetti & Figli of Milan in 1986.
Nose: complex and balanced. Ham and prunes, milk chocolate, rhubarb pie, praline, espresso coffee and cardamom. Superb.
Mouth: again, complex and ‘antique’ yet rather fresh. Sultanas, ripe strawberries, marshmallows and bubblegum (unusual in old Macallans), orange cake. Less sherried than other versions but still at the top. Also slightly medicinal.
Brilliant whisky. SGP:632 – 91 points.
