This bottling was brought out to celebrate the Private Eye, a popular British satirical and current affairs magazine, 35th anniversary in 1996 and was restricted to a Limited Edition of 5,000 bottles, all individually numbered (with this particular offering being bottle number 3070).
A vatting of Macallan casks, including one from 1961 - the magazine's first publication year, the bottle has a unique stencilled label created by the famous cartoonist Ralph Steadman.
The history, design and of course the excellent whisky inside mean this continues to be a hugely collectible Macallan.
Got given one of these as a gift in the 90's, bet they wish they'd kept it. I DO!!

Picked up 2 about 15 yrs ago, opened one (which was great), but pleased to say I savoured the other - after seeing recent valuations (Dec 2014).

My wife bought me this for a birthday present and we intended to open it on the millennium but forgot. It's now part of my retirement pot.

Bought three bottles of this whisky from a shop in Bicester, drunk two of them, which I thought was exceptional.
New Year's Eve I was about to open the third one when my son stopped me from doing so, as he had read an article about it and told me how much they were selling for! Now it's a keeper.
