Macallan 50 Years Old 1949 - Millennium Decanter
Distilled on the 14th January 1949 in Spanish Oak Sherry Casks, this is an incredibly well aged Macallan which has attained near legendary status. Bottled for the Millennium celebrations; the highly coveted Whisky was decanted into a specially commissioned Caithness glass decanter, complete in an oak presentation box. It features a copper ingot stopper cast from No. 9 spirit still from the Macallan distillery. This example even comes with an uncompleted form to have a personalised Macallan Millennium key made as well as the original key provided with the set.
Naturally with copper there may be a slight tarnishing to the metal of the stopper but should polish out.
The whisky itself is an incredibly scarce 50 year old malt which is highly rated by Jim Murray, author of the whisky bible and the late whisky connoisseur and author Michael Jackson.
This is a fabulous Lot, and one which we'd love to keep ourselves! The lucky new owner will become the keeper of what is quite simply one of the most sought after bottles in the world.
