Macallan 18 Years Old 1980 - Gran Reserva
A truly classic sherried Macallan, this 1980 is one of the highly-sought-after Gran Reserva series released in the 1990s to showcase the extreme end of sherried whisky from the distillery. Scoring 91 points on Serge Valentin's whiskyfun.com, this is one of the landmark Macallan releases of the last twenty years.
Selected from the finest Oloroso casks and then bathed in the most sultry of Spanish sherry casks for 18 years. This was then bottled as The Macallan Gran Reserva, the first bottling was in '79 and the last in '82.
Distilled in 1980 at Macallan, and bottled in 1999, this 70cl bottle was matured in sherry wood. Comes presented in a straw-filled wooden presentation box.
