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.
