Macallan Decades Twenties
Winning bid: £60.00
Lot number: 021601
The Collectable 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 1920's, their 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 1920's, most Macallan produced was sold to whisky blenders as a "top dressing" single malt for their blended whiskies. The few remaining casks continued to mature their contents for longer, resulting in a whisky that was slightly drier and less toffee sweet than modern day Macallan
