The Scotch Malt Whisky Society was founded in Edinburgh in 1983 by Phillip 'Pip' Hills who, while travelling around Scotland in the 1970s, fell in love with whiskies drawn straight from the cask. After convincing some friends to buy a cask of Glenfarclas he expanded his syndicate and in 2004 the Society was purchased by Glenmorangie PLC. It has a unique code system where the first number refers to the distillery and the second refers to the cask from which the bottle comes. SMWS also offers the largest range of distilleries of any independent bottler.

This is stand out bottling of Macallan from 1966 and, rather unusually for SMWS, has been assigned an individual bottle number. Perhaps even more unusual is that this Macallan has been matured in Bourbon wood. The bottle is housed in a wooden presentation box.

Distilled: November 1966

56% ABV / 70cl
