macallan 1928-1983 - 50 year old - anniversary malt

Lot ID: 0317/286

1 bottle macallan 1928 - 1983. over 50 years old. anniversary malt. imported by berman imports, los angeles. no box. with letter of authenticity. one of only 500 bottles. 750ml. 77 proof. level low neck. ageing to label.  the macallan 50 year old anniversary malt is widely regarded as one the most significant bottlings in the history of scottish malt whisky, from the perspectives of production, bottling and marketing. at the time of it's release in 1983 it was not only one of the first malt whiskies to be bottled at such a great age but the first official macallan bottling at such an age and the first official release to be targeted at such a premium level with appropriate description and packaging.  the whisky itself is composed of three casks distilled between 1926 and 1928, making the whisky in fact 55 years old at least. note also the naturally low cask strength of 38.6% (77 proof), one of very few bottlings ever to be released beneath standard filling strength of 40%. over the years this whisky has acquired a reputation as one of the greatest ever bottled, however there are so few people who have tasted it that it remains one of the most sought after bottlings in the world today.  this appearance at whisky online auctions marks the second time this bottling has come up for sale in an online auction such as ours and the first time it has appeared on the secondary market since.
