Macallan 52 Year Old Select Reserve 1946 (MC)
MC5000-120*

The Directors of The Macallan take pleasure in offering this rare whisky from 1946, held for 52 years in splendid isolation. Each year, each season of slumber has shaped its spirit, deepened its heart, forged its character. From distillation to journey's end this whisky has been cared for with the profound wisdom of the casks for which The Macallan distillery is renowned. This fine malt whisky is a propitious testimonial to the craftsmanship of those who have gone before and an Orphic inspiration for those few who will follow.
This is another unusual Macallan, in that it was made with peated malt due to the high post-war prices of coal. It also happens to be one of the greatest Macallans ever released in our opinion. The inital release of this was quite large and took a while for the distillery to sell, but it is now recognised as a classic Macallan and its reputation is assured.
Comes with keys and certificate of authenticity in original packaging.

Macallan

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: Apple with hints of floral notes and peat. Light background of dried fruits. Palate: Balanced fruits with peat smoke and light wood. Light vanilla. Finish: Rich fruit and smoky peat with spice.
