Centuries of craftsmanship and expertise combine to create another unique addition to the Macallan Replica Series, inspired by the original, first distilled over 150 years ago. Macallan have gone to great lengths to translate the character and presentation of this latest offering. The surface of the original glass bottle was lumpy in places, and the glass itself had trapped small bubbles; the neck was not straight and the body of the bottle was slightly ovoid. All these imperfections, common to early Victorian glassware, were precisely copied in the replica bottles, which were made by master glassmakers Stolzle Flaconnage of Knottingley, West Yorkshire. The replica bottles were then sealed by hand and finished with a faithfully re-created label, using the hand-lettered style of the original. A wonderful collectors piece for any whisky enthusiast.
Reviews: Antique Gold colour. The nose displays a wonderful cornucopia of fruits, floral and sweet malted barley. Balanced with light ginger spices, nutty and vanilla toffee. The palate is smooth and unctuous, with malty sweetness and mixed spices of ginger and cloves. Luxurious, sweet, malty finish with a medium long aftertaste. 41.3% alc./vol. - Bob Dalgarno, Whisky Maker at The Macallan.
