product Details

Macallan Archival Series Folio 4

The 2019 and fourth edition of this limited release from Macallan was only available through an online ballot. This is unlike the previous releases which were available only at the distillery.

Folio 4 features an advertisement including a strathspey composed by James Scott Skinner (1843-1927). The ad notes that Skinner, "The Strathspey King", was moved to music by the lilting flavour and melting resonances of a tumbler of his favourite malt whisky - The Macallan.

The ad, small but groundbreaking, was the first instance of musical notation displayed on a page of British newspaper, The Times, and quite possibly in the advertising of any whisky.

As with the previous Folio releases, the bottle is presented with a book inside an elegant book-shaped tin box.
