The Macallan 18 Year Old series is the longest ongoing series by Macallan. Beginning in 1984, an 18 year old expression has been released by the distillery every year. The bottles are amongst the most collectable Macallans out there, with many whisky collectors and investors dreaming of building a Macallan 18 Year Old vertical much like the one we sold last year on behalf of Matthew Robson.
In his review, Matthew had this to say:
“I was looking to sell my whisky collection of 28 bottles of Macallan 18 year old to fund the purchase of my first house, so I got in touch with Mark.
My father gave me 1 bottle each year for a birthday present so that by the time that I was 18 I would have 18 bottles of 18 year old Macallan. (Yes I’m that guy who was plastered over the media)
Mark did a great job of getting professional photos taken of them and creating a PR buzz around the collection and I even ended up on BBC breakfast news, lad bible, and various radio stations around the world.
At one point my story was the second most viewed story on BBC world wide news app for the whole weekend with over 2 million views.
Needless to say within a day or two of this PR Campaign there was numerous offers.
I would like to thank Mark for all his work and helping me with everything.”
All Macallan 18 Year Olds are valuable and sought after, but generally speaking, the older vintages do command a premium. Make sure that you are keeping your bottles in good conditions to avoid damage and a subsequent drop in value. You can find out more about storing your whisky safely here.
