The Macallan 1946 Select Reserve 52 years old, Sherry Wood /40%/
In today’s world Macallan is unquestionably the most cherished whisky brand but it took about 50 years to earn such title. In the late 1950s the company directors decided on expansion and relying more on sales of single malt.
In subsequent years the success of the brand has been remarkable, there is no serious whisky collection without at least several expressions of Macallan. The brand keeps beating its own records for the most expensive whisky ever sold, on October 24, 2019 a bottle of 1926 Macallan 60 years old sold at auction held by Sotheby’s in London for £1,5 million. The whisky came from cask # 263, which in 1986 produced only 40 bottles and today is often described as ‘Holy Grail of Whisky’.
Here we have another masterpiece from Macallan, 1946 Vintage. The whisky was distilled right after the Second World War ended, when the distillery had difficulty sourcing coal and the owners decided to use peat in barley malting process just to keep things running. The whisky then spent over 50 years in sherry casks making it truly unique expression from the award-winning distillery. This rare, masterpiece Macallan is presented in simple but elegant wooden box under lock and key and comes with certificate of authenticity.
