Other Information

  • Distilled1948

Selected from only three Spanish oak sherry casks, a mere 366 bottles of The Macallan 1948 have been released - a truly collectible treasure.

Each bottle and accompanying certificate bears a unique date, corresponding to one of the 366 days of 1948, a leap year. Certificates have been individually signed by David Robertson, Master Distiller and Macallan 'Nose' at that time.The whisky possesses a remarkable character, imbued with an unusual phenolic note accompanying the rich, spicy, resinous, fruit character which typifies The Macallan.

Each bottle is presented in a hand-crafted box, turned from a single piece of the very finest cherry wood. The 1948 has been bottled at cask strength, ensuring that its unique character can be appreciated to the full. The 1948 was initially only available in the UK, but is now available internationally from renowned whisky stores. The casks were filled on 3rd January 1948 and bottled in 1999 which makes the 1948 51 years old.

Colour. Deep amber.

Nose. Floral, fragrant perfume with sweet ripe apples, lemon and orange; rich, soft enveloping phenols with subtle undertones of wood.

Palate. Strongly phenolic with apples and citrus fruit, spicy coriander and nutmeg.

Finish. Long, citrus and phenolic; dry and spicy.
