The Macallan 1948 Select Reserve 51 Years Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky


Region: Speyside (Scotland)

Distillery: Macallan

Age: 51 Years

ABV: 46.6% (Cask Strength)

Size: 700 ml

Distilled in 1948 from barley harvested in the late summer of 1947 (mashed and fermented in the last hours of 1947), this release was matured in three Spanish Oak Sherry Casks in the Easter Elchies Estate at Macallan. 366 bottles were released. Each bottle represents a day (and is hand numbered as such with a specific day from the year of 1948, which being a leap year had 366 days). This bottle is numbered with the date of 25th August. Including a signed certificate of guarantee.  This is quite a different Macallan than the usual heavy sherry bottlings and instead has a very clean, fruity with some phenolic/subtle smoke notes and surprisingly youthful for such an aged malt. Rated 93+ on Whiskybase across 32 votes.
