Macallan 1861 Replica (MC)

The Macallan 1861 has been created as a replica of an original Macallan, distilled in 1861 and bottled , labels nose and flavour of the whisky mirror the original as closely as possible. It was during the mid to late 19th century that John McWilliam of Craigellachie built his reputation as a purveyor of fine wines and whiskies. Sound testament to this are his bespoke bottling’s of The Macallan - a practice he carried on until the 1890's Using a sample drawn from an original bottle - just enough for the Whisky Maker, Bob Dalgarno, to nose and create a replica of this unique bottling - it recalls The Macallan of that era.

The Macallan Distillery is probably one of the most famous brands in the whisky industry today. The distillery is three miles from Craigellachie which is the heart of the Speyside region. Even though Macallan is located in the heart of Speyside they have labeled it a Highland malt. The distillery was founded in 1824 and was named the ‘Elchies Distillery’. Macallan has 8 wash stills and 18 spirit stills and produces around 8,000,000 litres a year. In 2001 Macallan opened up a new visitor center. The tour that Macallan provides is very in depth and is great if you are just starting out and learning all about whisky. It shows all the processes and the maturation all the way down to microscopic slides so you can understand what happens. It is worth visiting.

Nose: Potpourri, spice cupboard, flapjack, syrup, rosewater & custard. Palate: Slippery-smooth. Very sweet perfume, anise, restrained fruitiness & candied orange peel. Delicious sherry character. Great depth of flavour. Finish: Toasty dryness. Long & soothing. Comment: Quite an achievement. Like the previous 'replica' edition, this is more delicate than the robustly sherried Macallans of today. – Michael Jackson
