This is another of my dad’s expensive Macallans I bought him, but this time at a relatively (compared to the Macallan Gran Reserva 1982 review a few weeks ago) cheap £180 a bottle, we got to taste this one!
Given its 16 years old and was started in 1991 I’m guessing I bought this for Christmas 2008. Back then I probably paid £50-60 but as with all unusual Macallans, it’s shot up in value. The photo does point to the fact my dad has had it for nearly 10 years without opening it 😕
Murray McDavid has a long tradition of bottling quality whiskies, but even by their standards, this is a bit special. Bottled at Bruichladdich the cask was chosen by the great distilling legend, Jim McEwan and limited to a thousand bottles.
