The Macallan Forties Single Malt Scotch Whisky (500ml)

Speyside, Highlands, SCOTLAND
$99.99 Bottle
  • ABV 40%

The collectable range of four Macallan variants, recreated by the distilleries master Whisky Maker, reflects the style of The Macallan in the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s and the distinctive packaging features a classic mode of travel from each era. The range was rated by Michael Jackson, the renowned international whisky writer, in the Malt Whisky Companion as being ”Amongst the highest of any malts”.

During the 1940’s, with oak Sherry casks in short supply as a result of the Second World War, Macallan would refill their casks more often than is the current practice. This, combined with the use of peat to dry the barley, resulted in a whisky that was less spicy and peatier than modern day Macallan. To recreate the taste of the Macallan as it was in the 1940’s, Macallan’s Master Distiller sampled bottles from that decade and their aroma and flavour was matched with more recent distillations. Very Limited Stocks.
