A 75cl version of Macallan's Anniversary Malt (as the 25yo sherry cask version used to be known) bottled in 2000, this edition was distilled in 1975 and was, as far as we know, the last time that Macallan's 25yo had a stated vintage.

The time spent maturing in carefully selected European and American oak casks which have previously held Sherry or Bourbon creates a rich, intense liquid, with a deep colour achieved wholly naturally through the interaction between spirit and wood. 1 BOTTLE PER CUSTOMER
A very special bottle of Macallan, this was distilled in 1965 and bottled in 1994 by Signatory. With an average score of 92 points from the Malt Maniacs (including 93 from Serge Valentin) this is one of the bottlings that helped establish Signatory as one of Scotland's most important independent bottlers.
A very special Macallan for a very special occasion, celebrating the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. This whisky has been drawn from the cask on February 8th, the date of the Queen's accession, and bottled at a strength of 52% to signify the beginning of her reign in 1952. Finally, to represent the 60th year of her reign, this special whisky is limited to just 2012 bottles.
One of the most collectable ever Macallans, bottled in 1996 for the 35th anniversary of the famous satirical magazine Private Eye (still essential reading). The vatting produced 5000 bottles and included one cask from 1961. This special edition is also unique in that it features a superb screenprinted label by the legendary gonzo illustrator Ralph Steadman.
A truly classic sherried Macallan, this 1979 is regarded as the best of the highly-sought-after Gran Reserva series released in the 1990s to showcase the extreme end of sherried whisky from the distillery. Scoring 91 points on Serge Valentin's whiskyfun.com, this is one of the landmark Macallan releases of the last twenty years.
One of the hugely sought-after series of sherried Macallans released at the tail end of the 1990s. Bottled in small batches from casks deemed to good to be added to the vat for the standard 18yo, these Gran Reservas are now very hard to come by.
Another of the hugely popular Macallan Gran Reserva series, released around the turn of the century. These releases were made in small batches from casks that were too good to be vatted into the standard 18yo release and are highly prized by collectors today.
