- Macallan 30 Year Old 1985 Old & Rare
Macallan 30 Year Old 1985 vintage Speyside single malt Scotch whiskey. Single cask refill hogshead bottled May 2015 by Hunter Laing & Co. for the Old & Rare Platinum Selection. 212 bottles.
A golden whiskey with a powerful nose of vanilla and raisins to the fore, and a hint of liquorice, rhubarb and slight citrus notes appearing late. There is a rich and creamy mouthfeel, with notes of vanilla, fruit cake, cinnamon and butterscotch sauce giving a balanced taste. The finish has a long and sweet aftertaste with just a wisp of oak.
