THE MACALLAN
1928 ANNIVERSARY MALT
50 YEAR OLD
38.6% | 75cl
At the time of its release, this was the first official
bottling of The Macallan at such an exceptional age.
Composed of three different casks distilled between
1926 and 1928, although only ever officially
marketed as a 50 year old whisky, it is likely that
this bottle in fact contains 55 year old liquid. This is
bottled at an unusual but natural low cask strength of
38.6%, as it was released five years before it became
a legal requirement for Scotch whisky to be bottled
at 40%.
THE MACALLAN
SELECT RESERVES
1946 & 1948
Bottled in the late 1990s, the Select Reserves were
an early precursor to the Fine & Rare series. Due to
the post-Second World War rationing of coal, the
distillery was forced to malt with a higher amount of
peat than normal, imparting an unusual but reputed
smoky flavour to both the 1946 and 1948 Select
Reserve vintages. Charmingly, each of the 336 bottles
produced of the 1948 vintage have been allocated
an individual date rather than a conventional bottle
number, so not one bottle shares the same date as
another.
THE MACALLAN 1946 SELECT RESERVE
52 YEAR OLD
40% | 70cl
THE MACALLAN 1948 SELECT RESERVE
51 YEAR OLD
46.6% | 70cl
