Macallan 1976 18 Years

Contact us at for more enquiry.



This is the highly acclaimed Macallan 18 year old.  Distilled in 1976 and matured in sherry wood casks before being bottled in 1994, this is a very collectable bottle.


Nose: starts quite beautifully but certainly less obviously sherried than other versions such as many 18yo’s that were distilled earlier. There’s also a faint soapiness but other than that it’s all on old walnuts, wax polish, cooked apricots and old wood. Also a little leather and cigarette tobacco as well as orange marmalade. Something antique, I’d say.

Mouth: very fruity and fresher than expected, with, again, no too much sherry influence. Apricot juice, tinned pineapples, mint drops, smoked tea and roasted nuts plus a little milk chocolate. The body is slightly thin but the whole is rather satisfying.

Finish: medium-long, on caramelised fruits and medium-bodied sweet white wine (Monbazillac and such). Very good Macallan despite the lack of ‘ampleur’, but there were many better batches of the classic 18years old I think. 85 points.
