A long-matured 1966 vintage Macallan as part of independent bottler Gordon & Macphail's Speymalt series. This was aged for just under half a century – judging by the colour in a sherry cask – before being bottled in 2014.
An incredible collectors bottling from Macallan, the third in a range of royal bottlings, with only 1953 sets produced. This set celebrates Queen Elizabeth II's coronation in 1953, 60 years before the release, and comprises two sherry cask matured whiskies - one from American oak, one from Spanish.
The old presentation of Macallan 30, a rare whisky that is only released in limited quantities. A mixture of European and American oak, used previously for both sherry and bourbon, creates a complex, rich and deeply intense whisky that is one to savour.
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.
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.
A 1989 vintage Macallan selected as part of the Masters of Photography series, celebrating the work of Annie Leibowitz. This was matured in a sherry butt and features a photograph of actor & director Kevin McKidd entitled 'The Gallery'.
Part of the Annie Leibowitz collection in Macallan's Masters of Photography series, this 1996 vintage whisky was matured in an American Oak butt and is paired with a photograph of New York's iconic skyline, appropriately called 'The Skyline'.
A old bottling of Macallan whisky, bottled when they were still calling their whisky by the name Macallan-Glenlivet (something that was quite popular amongst distillers some years ago). This whisky was distilled in 1949 and bottled at 24 years of age in the mid-1970s.
Please note this bottle has a torn and stained label as shown in the photograph.
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.
