The Macallan, one of the world’s ultimate luxury single malt Scotch whisky, has unveiled the newest addition to The Macallan Fine & Rare collection; the 1991 Fine & Rare vintage.
The Macallan Fine & Rare collection, created to identify the very best of The Macallan’s finest maturing stock, features some of the greatest vintage single malts ever released and the 1991 vintage continues to add to the liquid history of The Macallan, offering new insights into the aroma and flavour characteristic of this exquisite single malt.
The Macallan’s Master Whisky Maker, Bob Dalgarno, selected cask No. 7021, an American oak Vasyma puncheon sherry seasoned in Jerez, Spain. The cask was filled with The Macallan new make spirit on March 28th 1991. This rare whisky is bottled at a natural cask strength of 49.4% abv, deemed by the Master Whisky Maker to be the ideal strength to fully realise and appreciate the intense yet soft palate of the 25 years old 1991 Fine & Rare.
“The Macallan Fine & Rare collection continues to charm collectors around the world and the demand grows with each new bottling. We are proud that since the very first release of the 1926 Fine & Rare that this collection of vintage single malts has come to stand for the best in the industry, commanding worldwide acclaim and admiration from single malt enthusiasts. The soft and refined velvety sweetness of this 25 years old vintage will not disappoint,” said Manager of Brand Education and Fine & Rare Whiskies, Charlie Whitfield.
Over the years, the Fine & Rare collection has underpinned The Macallan as one of the world’s most valuable and collectable single malt whisky, dominating auctions and private sales around the world, setting record prices.
The 1991 Fine & Rare will retail at approximately $10,000 USD per 750ml bottle.
