2nd February, 2017 by Amy Hopkins

Highland single malt Scotch whisky The Macallan has expanded its Fine & Rare Collection with the launch of a 1991 vintage.

The Macallan’s 1991 Fine & Rare vintage is priced US$10,000

The Macallan’s master whisky maker Bob Dalgarno used liquid from cask No.7021 – an oak Vasyma puncheon Sherry seasoned in Jerez, Spain – for the bottling, which was distilled on 28 March 1991.

The 25-year-old expression is bottled at natural cask strength of 49.4% abv and carries an RRP of US$10,000

“The Macallan Fine & Rare collection continues to charm collectors around the world and the demand grows with each new bottling,” said The Macallan’s manager of brand education and Fine & Rare whiskies, Charlie Whitfield.

“We are proud that since the very first release of the 1926 Fine & Rare that this collection of vintage single malts has come to stand for the best in the industry, commanding worldwide acclaim and admiration from single malt enthusiasts. The soft and refined velvety sweetness of this 25-year-old vintage will not disappoint.”

The Macallan’s Fine & Rare is one of the most expensive collections of Scotch whisky in the world that is still being expanded. The range was created to showcase the Edrington-owned brand’s “finest maturing stock”.

In December last year, a selection of The Macallan Fine & Rare bottlings from 1937 to 1990 was sold to a collector for US$500,000 through Le Clos – breaking the record for the largest ever travel retail transaction.
