Member Ratings and Notes
A much darker sherried macallan 18 compared to the newer stock.  I had heard lots of very bad things about this particular year so I was prepared for the worst.  But this was nice.  As stated darker sherried notes with lots of anise and bits of smoke.  Not so much going on with the palate.  I was expecting more sherry fruits.  I do feel the new stock has more going on though.  It doesn't live up to its very bad reputation, but then again I havent had much of the 70's stock to compare it to. 
It doesn't suck, but there's a funk to it that turns me off from wanting more. I see why people were pissed when this hit shelves.
