A 1949 vintage Glenlivet drawn from the scary end of Gordon & Macphail's well-stocked warehouses. Glenlivet is a spirit that can happily take a lot of aging and this one is a perfect demonstration, having sat in a cask for over 50 years..
A VERY rare bottle of 1949 Macallan, made for a private company in Japan around the turn of the millennium. Only around 100 bottles of this precious vintage release were ever made, bottled just before the whisky went under permitted strength in a simple, elegant Baccarat crystal decanter.
Very few malts can stand anything like as much ageing as this Benromach has managed. Which makes it all the more amazing that the whisky inside the bottle can still seem so fresh. Of course, over fifty-five years, the angels get to take more than their fair share - only eighty-three bottles were yielded from the cask. MAXIMUM ONE PER CUSTOMER
A 1949 Macallan, aged for 52 years and released as part of their Fine & Rare range of vintage whiskies. Looks like they got this one in the nick of time - the natural bottling strength is listed as 41.1%.
The jewel in the crown, this for us is the most special aged Macallan whisky ever bottled. Christmas cake style fruit with all the complexity of a classy aged malt. This Macallan is in a league of its own and proudly sits alongside the more recent Lalique range.
