About the distillery

The Macallan distillery is a single malt Scotch whisky distillery in Craigellachie, Moray. The Macallan Distillers Ltd, is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Edrington Group which purchased the brand from Highland Distillers in 1999.

Other Information

This lot offers the fantastic opportunity to own one cask of Macallan single malt scotch whisky, distilled in 1990. 

Originally filled with Macallan spirit on the 23rd January 1990, the whisky has since been maturing in a refill hogshead (cask number 1082) which is currently held in bond at The Macallan Distillery.

The cask was regauged on 21st April 2022 summarising the following:

 - New bulk 85.3 litres | New strength 45.1% ABV | 38 litres of alcohol

This would currently yield approximately 121 x 70cl bottles of 32 Year Old Macallan whisky.

Please note the sample is shown for confirmation of the colour only and is not included in the sale (it has been consumed to populate tasting notes!).

UNOFFICIAL TASTING NOTES:

COLOUR:
Yellow honey gold.


NOSE:
Beautifully soft nose with honey sweetness and Madagascan vanilla to the fore. Underneath comes caramelised apple crumble with blackberries, soft baking spices and lovely whisps of fresh stoned fruits like peach and apricot. There is a smooth balance on the nose as would be expected and desired in a marque of this age. Everything you expect and need from Macallan.


PALATE:
Light and delicate with a rich buttery creaminess followed by soft spice that builds and elegantly develops. Not as sweet as the nose suggests, due to the drying nature of the spicy oak, but the crispness of red apple, orange keep everything vibrant.  Slowly the spice diminishes to polished leather with a milk chocolate hint with a little meadow florals. Well balanced and velvet smooth.


BODY:
Medium


FINISH:
Long with a soft spice over a light but rich orange.

IMPORTANT:

 - Macallan Distillery require that this cask is moved from their warehouse immediately following completion of the transfer as a condition of sale. This will be the responsibility of the buyer.

 - The buyer will also be liable for an administration fee payable to Edrington to transfer ownership. 

 - Legal ownership of the cask will be transferred to the buyer once payment has been received by Whisky Hammer.  Funds will be held by Whisky Hammer until the buyer is in legal receipt of the cask ownership to protect the buyer's transaction.  

 - Ownership of this cask is auctioned in bond.  The buyer will be responsible for any costs relating to removing the cask from bond in the future (i.e UK excise duty / VAT) as well as any other costs associated with cask movement and bottling.

 - Non-UK buyers must appoint a duty representative to act on his/her behalf for transfer of ownership of the cask (Whisky Hammer can assist in finding a UK representative if required).  The duty representative will need to be registered with HMRC and will normally charge an annual fee for the service.

 - Please note if the new owner is a UK revenue trader (business), they will need to be registered with HMRC and hold a WOWGR certificate.

Please ensure that you undertake close up viewing/inspection prior to placing any bid.  If you are not satisfied with the photos, or if you have questions beyond the offered description and images, please click "ask a question" to make specific enquiries or to receive a more in-depth condition report.  Lots will be sold as seen and described.  

 

Insurance against breakage or loss during transit is available at checkout at a cost of 3% of the hammer price.
