macallan 12 year old - liqueur whisky - 100 proof - rotation 1971

Lot ID: 0818/460

1 bottle macallan 12 year old. liqueur scotch whisky. rotation 1971. bottled by gordon & macphail under licence. no box. 26 2/3 fl ozs. 100 proof. level high neck. very minor wear to label, otherwise good condition. a somewhat significant macallan compared to the variations we commonly see. and it's not only because it's bottled at 100 proof but instead because it specifies liqueur whisky prominently across the label. liqueur was a term used to identify a whisky as being high quality and was used from around the 1920s to the 1970s. this is one of the earliest examples of macallan with an age statement and although bottled by gordon & macphail is deemed an official bottling. this example is specifically from a parcel of stock that was rotating in 1971 and is most likely from a significant supply of macallan distilled in 1958. these hardly ever turn up in auction, especially in such crisp condition as this one.
