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!

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.

Great with sausage

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