Macallan 1930s

During the 1930s, with coal in short supply as a result of increasing industrial activity, Macallan reverted to drying barley using peat fires. This, combined with the scarcity of oak sherry casks due to the Spanish civil war, resulted in a whisky that was both peatier and less spicy than modern day Macallan

40% ABV / 50cl

Macallan 1950s

During the 1950s, Spanish oak sherry casks became available again following the disruption of the Second World War, allowing The Macallan to revert to using only first and second fill casks. This resulted in a whisky that was as rich and spicy as modern day Macallan, but with a hint of peat smoke.


40% ABV / 50cl
