To re-create the style of The Macallan in the 1920's, their Master Distiller has sampled bottles of The Macallan from that decade and matched their aroma and flavour with more recent distillations taken from the casks maturing in the warehouses.

During the 1920's, most of The Macallan produced was sold to whisky blenders as a 'top dressing' single malt for their blended whiskies. The few remaining casks continued to mature their contents for longer, resulting in a whisky that was slightly drier and less toffee sweet than modern day Macallan.

The range was rated by Michael Jackson, the renowned international whisky writer, in the Malt Whisky Companion as: 'Amongst the highest of any malts'.

Colour: Rich mahogany orange.

Nose: Rich, resinous, sherried spice with dried fruits. Good citrus with a touch of light wood.

Palate: Classic Macallan with sherried, spicy cloves. Rich, oily viscosity.

Aftertaste: Sherried and ginger spice.

The Macallan vintage travel range was initially launched in 1999 as an exclusive to World Duty Free. After the initial trial period the product was re-packaged into its current form and put on general sale in the Autumn 2000. This highly collectable range is now on sale again.

The Collectable range of 4 variants, recreated by their Master Distiller, reflects the style of The Macallan in the 1920's, 30's, 40's and 50's and the distinctive packaging features a classic mode of travel from each era.
