Macallan Decades Forties 50cl
Winning bid: £175.00
Lot number: 073-6516
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 1940s, 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 1940s, with a shortage of sherry cask as a result of the Second World War, Macallan would refill its casks more often than is the current practice. This, combined with the use of peat to dry the barley, resulting in a whisky that was less spicy and peatier than modern day Macallan.
