1940 The Macallan Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

Speyside, Highlands, SCOTLAND
$20,000.00 Bottle
  • ABV 43%

A Macallan from the calligraphy label vintage series, distilled in 1940 and bottled in 1981. As Serge mentions below, this is one of the more difficult to find in the series. Comes with original timber crate. As new condition, remarkable given the age of this release. Some minor sediment in the bottom of the bottle. One only to sell.

Other reviews… This is the famous ‘red stripe and red wax’ bottling. The 1938, the 1950 and the 1957 are pretty easier to find than this 1940. Colour: amber. Nose: ultra-classic honeyed fruits, powerful, very complex, peaty, ample, dense, silky, extremely refined. Very classy. Touches of tiger balm, oriental spices, heather, beeswax, chocolate. There’s a lot of chocolaty sherry. Mouth: a little monolithic, on raisins and coffee, with a little peach and mirabelle, a little kirsch, slightly farmy and earthy, a little rough. Lacks polishing, which is surprising. Finish: long, more elegant, balanced, on coffee and kirsch with a rooty kind of peat. Dark chocolate. Amusing hints of roses in the aftertaste. Comments: a rather rough one, chocolate-forward, peaty, very good.
