Macallan 18/ 1992

Postby clicker7 » Tue Nov 01, 2011 3:32 am

Hello Gentlemen-- Greetings to all!

I'm re-stocking Macallan 18, and my local shops are selling "1992".

I am wondering if anyone has tasted this, and if you had any input or notes on the 92?

I'm just finishing off my last bottle of Mac 18 which is "1989", which was sweet, creamy, and rich, but had a little bitterness from a bit too much oak. Interestingly, after several months of being opened the bitterness/oakiness has seemed to mellow bit, leaving it much more balanced, quite delcious and rich.

Just wondering if the 92 had any of this bitterness in the finish? At $150 a bottle, I want to make sure I'm gonna love it!

Thanks in advance!

Joseph

Thanks Mikey, and Ganga:

Glad to hear the 92's are nice!

That's why I like Mac 18 for that rich, sweet, sherry influence; but my 1989 bottles had a little oak/bitterness in the finish. Happy to hear it's not in the 1992's, I'll be stocking up this week.
