Product Description

This extremely rare Speyside single malt Scotch whisky was distilled at The Macallan in 1956 and bottled for the UK market by one of the distillers' official bottlers in the sixties and seventies, Campbell, Hope & King of Elgin.

Bottled at 80 proof and 26 2/3 FL. Ozs in the 1970's, this highly collectible malt comes in excellent condition, with a fill level well into the neck, considering its advancing years - see image for finer detail.

Many vintage Macallan's from this era were bottled for the Italian market, whom at that time, were more highly appreciative and passionate about the golden nectar than the rest of us. It seems the rest of the world has since woken up to the fact that single malts are the most highly complex drink on the market, offering taste and smell sensations that no other luxury drink can match!
