Macallan 1861 Replica
Released in 2002, this replica bottling was created to mimic a bottle of Macallan purportedly produced in 1861. It is one of four releases that also include replicas of bottles from 1841, 1874 and 1876.
The purpose of this series was to re-create the four antique expressions of Macallan in terms of bottle and label design, as well as to be an accurate re-creation of the whisky's nose and flavour. Several years after these replicas were released, it transpired that many of these bottles (which were purchased by Macallan) turned out to be fake. This release was one of those.
Despite this controversy, the collectability of these releases has only increased.
We would recommend viewing/close inspection prior to placing any bids. If this is not an option and you have questions beyond the offered description and images, please contact us for a more in-depth condition report. Otherwise lots will be sold as seen in the images.
Please note: Due to the various ages of bottles and their seals, condition of liquid is at the buyer's discretion and no claim can be lodged against failure/leakage in transit.
