The Macallan Collectors Vintage 1951

The Macallan 1951 Bottling Note

Distilled at the Macallan in 1951 and aged for fifty years before bottling in 2001 and a high proof.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

The nose is rich and warming, there are notes of winter spice; cinnamon and cloves and espresso beans. Hints of sherried sultanas and aniseed with a thick oaken, over-ripe pear creeps in. The palate is thick and full. There are notes of rubber and heather roots, ash and winter spice with fruitcake and a gentle, chewy peat. The finish is long and dry with smoke and barley sugar.

Mr Big

Stunning malt through and through! on the plus side after consuming the full bottle using no hands and a twirly straw I found that I was savagely intoxicated......... the real plus was that I works like Viagra I haven't been able to roll over in bed for 2 weeks now!!!! The wife is that impressed with its attributes that we have managed to secure a free prescription from the doc............. God bless the N.H.S

Very Strong

This drink is really strong. Even with just standard 25ml shot I had to use a can and a half of cherry coke to mask the horrible taste. Never got drunk as I ran out of coke.

Sorry gramps

my grandad purchases one of these, apparently saving it for the day Margaret Thatcher kicked the bucket. instead, whilst he was away on holiday last year, i was left to look after his bungalow and supped the whole lot (whilst watching the Iron Lady dvd) and it was superb. Anyway, when the time comes, I'm sure he won't noticed, I refilled the bottle with classic Bells, I hear that it pretty great too!

This scotch!

This scotch tastes like scotch.

Nice but expensive

I managed to buy a bottle last year and still have some left.

I always drink the scotches but keep the packaging and bottles.

Taste is very heavy on the sherry and taste of vanilla and almonds.

To be perfectly honest I much prefer the 10 year old sherry oak macallans.

£4K for 4 stars? Ach, it was born the same year as me so it must be worth it.

Truly Impressive

After finishing my night shift working as security at Walmart, I found this waiting on me in the morning mail.

I sat down and cracked open the case with a hammer and pulled the bottle out to begin my journey.

The scotch pairs well with Nightwing's Salisbury Steak and Mac dinner, providing a sweet finish to the Apple Crisp dessert tray. I mixed a bit with my RC Cola that I take with me to work the next night and let me tell you... For $.59 cents a can, RC Cola is the best companion you can find to mix with this quality of scotch. I wouldn't burden yourself with mixing it with swill like Pepsi or Dr. Pepper when you can get RC Cola at the dollar store for $3 for a sixer.

I took my 25 year old Laphroaig and poured it down the drain the next night as I ordered another two bottles of the 1951.

My 2nd fave Scotch ATM

Narrowly edged by Cuttysark, Otherwise a great everyday dram.

Great with sausage

If used in cooking, pair with pork fritters. Yum!

Awesome Scotch

Tastes amazing with cherry limeade

Not impressed

Bought a bottle for my mistress Helen Taylor, she didn't think much of it so we swapped it for a zoot down Maidenhall shops.

Tasted like the dogs dinner

Monthly Malt are trying to get a re-bottling together to send out 30ml tasters to members. I hear good things from them about this whiskey

It grows on you

I only started to appreciate this expression after the eighth bottle but unfortunately I can't remember what it tasted like. It was a very expensive night.

Sit back Relax

Fantastic if you need to unwind after a hard days trading

Pure gold

Obtained a case for a good friends wedding. The response was unbelievable would recommend if you want to impress and a family function.

tastes of whorls of translucent wonder dripping through a elegant Scottish wonderland of playful nutty spice things who can SEE sounds, HEAR tastes and FEEL colours...probably...I dropped my bottle on the bus on the way home and got thrown off for weeing myself

Mr A. Dong

@ In line with other comments:
Based on your recommendations, I tried this on the bumper of my Roller and it stripped the solid silver straight off. You owe me another bottle of this!

Heating bills

I invested in a bottle as i heard that whiskey could keep people warm and i wished to save on the heating bills.
It did keep me warm, and in the two days it took me too drink this bad boy i was toasty, cosy, happy and many other descriptive terms which end in'Y'
But now i find the warming effect has quickly worn wife complained that the investment was 'stupid' and that she and the children had frozen over the previous two days and that they are all going to live with her mother, adding that i had also become incoherent.
Whilst i enjoyed this whiskey immensley, i feel it should be made clear that it is not a viable alternative to gas/electricity/solid fuel for warming yourself.

Mr Mc Nugget

I bought this for jesus on our second date, but he just threw it in my face. Not recommended.

Great scotch

Great with diet Dr.Pepper. Best way to enjoy it is in my goblet of gold.

8th October 2011

Like a boss

This pairs well with Cristal Pepsi

16th September 2011

Far too Cheap

I bought a case of this for a special curry i was cooking at home, tasted a sip and then decided to give the rest to the dog..

Yes, this is fantastic. Although the taste is way beyond me, I found a little poured on a rag works wonders on the chrome of my old Bugatti.

4th July 2011

Pretty good!

I got this as a gift for my friend Kevin who works in Riverdale. He really wanted it for his birthday. I got a few bottles for myself too and couldn't resist! It started with a sip and I finished all 3 bottles...
