1989 Cadenheads Macallan-Glenlivet 25 Year Old Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Speyside, Highlands, SCOTLAND
$999. 00 Bottle
Cadenheads spoil us with a Macallan from a single x Bourbon cask and with a grand age statement at a very reasonable price. Note that the equivalent official distillery bottling will set you back $3000+. We have less than a handful available from a measly outturn of just 156 bottles. 51.4% Alc./Vol. * For those puzzled by the 'Macallan-Glenlivet' title on the label, history suggests the use of the 'Glenlivet' suffix was a convention in earlier times as means of association with Speyside and / or the Glenlivet distillery's enviable reputation. Tamnavulin, Glen Moray, Speyburn and Tomintoul all still carry "-Glenlivet" in their registered names. However, the suffix is now only used on the labels of some independent bottlers. Why persist with this terminology? Mark Watt at Cadenheads simply says, "Using the original name of the distillery is something that we have always historically done".
