Macallan 33 Bottling Note
A super rare, super exclusive Macallan from the Old and Rare Platinum range. This was distilled in May 1977 and aged for 33 years in a refill hogshead and a red wine cask! This was bottled in July 2010 at natural cask strength. A release of just 178 bottles.
Rare opportunity indeed
Rare value found
Used Glencairn glass for tasting first. Typical scotch glass after. The sherry is strong with this one, I am an MaCallan 18 lover and this one is somewhat different but still "typical" Macallan for sure but many fruity notes I am untalented enough to distinguish apart other than there are pronounced and there are more than one across the long finish. Don't pass up the opportunity on tasting this one.
My wife bought this for me when and presented it to me on our wedding day. Complex tones with hints of fruit long finish with satisfying warmth, a real gem of a whiskey.
very nice i have a unopened for my son for when he turns 18 hes 3 know
