Best 80´s Macallan 18

Postby Lugarteniente » Tue Nov 08, 2005 2:06 am

I think the 1985 is the best followed by the 1980 and 1984. Other opinions?

I have an unopened Mac 18-1985. Thanks for making me look forward to it even more. :wink: As soon as I finish the unimpressive 12 I will crack it open.

Sorry Nicholtl, but the '86 was not a good example of Mac 18 at all. :(

Was not impressed by the 84 actually.

Hi there,

still have a opened bottle of the Macallan 18 1983. A good whisky but not a revelation. But that seems to be true for all Macallans with me.

Greetings

I love the 1984 but I prefer the delicious 1985.

I really liked the 1986. We openend a bottle of it to celebrate a friends first born.

I'm embarassed to say it as I know it goes against the grain, but I preferred it to the 1985 :oops:
