Macallan 12 Year Old - Liqueur Whisky - 100 Proof - Rotation 1971

Cross Reference To Delivery Table: 2.00

1 bottle Macallan 12 Year Old. Liqueur Scotch Whisky. Rotation 1971. Bottled by Gordon & MacPhail under licence. No box. 26 2/3 Fl Ozs. 100 proof. Level high neck. Very minor wear to label, otherwise good condition.

A somewhat significant Macallan compared to the variations we commonly see. And it's not only because it's bottled at 100 proof but instead because it specifies Liqueur Whisky prominently across the label. Liqueur was a term used to identify a whisky as being high quality and was used from around the 1920s to the 1970s.

This is one of the earliest examples of Macallan with an age statement and although bottled by Gordon & MacPhail is deemed an official bottling. This example is specifically from a parcel of stock that was rotating in 1971 and is most likely from a significant supply of Macallan distilled in 1958. These hardly ever turn up in auction, especially in such crisp condition as this one.

Although a condition report is normally included in the lot description, 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 use the link "ask a question" to make specific enquiries or to receive a more in-depth condition report. Otherwise lots will be sold as seen and described.

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.
