Customer Rating

One of the most collectable Macallans of all time, bottled in 1996 for the 35th anniversary of the famous satirical magazine Private Eye. The vatting produced 5,000 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.

    I bought this when it was issued to advocates at £36.00 a bottle. Unfortunately I had hard times several years ago and sold it. I was lucky enough to be given a miniature on a visit to Craigellachie and was able to enjoy what was, and still is, the most wonderful whisky I have been introduced to.

    Bough three bottles of this in Bicester when it was first issued, drunk two of them, very enjoyable I must say. A couple of years ago I was about to crack open the last one, on New Year's Eve when my son stopped me from doing so, as he had recently read an article as to the value of it. Needless to say we had Lagavulin instead.

    I was an advocate of The Macallan when I bought a bottle of Private Eye and the miniature in 1996. Have tasted it in a bar/hotel on the Speyside early noughties, very nice! Luckily I still have my bottles' both not opened and in the original packing. Now at this price I never will! They are for sale now at a sensible offer.

    saved this bottle because of its rarity. opened it years to commemorate a family members passing. my only regret is that I didn't share it with them. its taste is unbelievable!

    Bought this in 1996 and saved it only for drinking on special occasions. makes me feel a bit sick now seeing how much it would have sold for. taste is spectacular.
