Lot Details
The Macallan Millennium Decanter-1949-50 year old
Released into decanter in August 1999. Distilled and bottled by The Macallan Distillers Ltd.
In wooden presentation case. Level: filled to 700 ml. Caithness Glass decanter accompanied by stopper. The Macallan Millennium Decanter-1949-50 year old

ON THE NOSE: Richly phenolic, cloves, coriander, orange and lemon. Some apples, hints of cereals and complementary wood.

ON THE PALATE: Rich, smoky, peaty phenolic. Wood influence with dried fruits and citrus. Some resinous spice, cloves and coriander.

THE FINISH: Rich citrus and wood enveloped with peat.

The three casks were filled on the same day, 14th January 1949, and have matured in Speyside over the last 50 years. Each cask was almost identical in strength when tipped them ready for the marrying period which started on 12th May 1999, each having lost the same amount of alcohol through evaporation over those 50 years. This means that each butt has contributed a third of the vatting, and thus a third of the character of the 50 years old.

這三桶酒於同一天即1949年1月14日裝桶,在蘇格蘭威士忌重鎮斯佩賽熟成50年。1999年5月12日融合期開始,威士忌出桶時,每一桶的強度幾乎毫無差別,經過50年所蒸發掉的份量完全一樣,於是分別貢獻出這瓶50年極品裡各三份一的風味。
