Macallan 1824 Collection Decanter 2009 Release

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.  

Part of the 1824 range, which was produced from 2012 to 2018. These decanters are very rarely seen at auction. A limited release which was originally exclusive to DFS stores (Singapore Duty Free), before being rolled out to other Travel Retail outlets, this is the 2009 release. 

The whisky is matured in four European sherry casks and presented in a hand crafted crystal decanter. 

Whisky Bible author Jim Murray gave this first first release 97.5 (his highest ever score) stating, "Unquestionably my favourite Macallan of all time: indeed one of the greatest whiskies ever created… Just about faultless."

One of only 1,824 bottles produced.
