product Details

Macallan 1950 Exceptional Cask 67 Year Old #1683-13

This incredibly rare 1950 vintage Macallan was released in July 2019 only available from select luxury and specialist retailers in the UK.

It may be hard to imagine today, but for much of the 20th century, Macallan was primarily a constituent malt in blends. It was not until the 1980s downturn in the market that the distillery decided to focus on its single malt brand. Fortuitously, this coincided with the crest of a wave of enthusiasm for the high quality releases that the distillery had licensed to Campbell, Hope & King and Gordon & MacPhail in the 1960s and 1970s. These remain some of the most collectible on the market. While global single malt sales volume is still lead by Speyside neighbours, Glenfiddich and Glenlivet, Macallan is easily the most sought after. So much so in fact, that they had to open a brand new distillery in 2018, a subterranean architectural masterpiece within the Easter Elchies estate, boasting 36 copper pot stills.

Distilled on the 9th November 1950 and bottled over 67 years later on 19th October 2018 after maturing in a single American Oak first-fill Sherry butt #1683 (Ref: 2018/ASB-1683/13).

The Macallan Exceptional Casks series was relaunched in 2017. The range takes its name from a number of single cask bottlings Macallan released during the 1990s, which are often described as some of "the greatest Macallan of them all."

One of 336 bottles.
