Macallan Decades Fifties 50cl
Winning bid: £140.00
Lot number: 070-2574
This range of 4 variants, recreated by Macallan's Whisky Maker, reflects the style of The Macallan in the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s and the distinctive packaging features a classic mode of travel from each era.
To re-create the style of The Macallan in the 1950s, its Master Distiller sampled bottles of The Macallan from that decade and matched their aroma and flavour with more recent distillations taken from the casks maturing in the warehouses.
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
