The Macallan Millennium was distilled in 1949 and aged for 50 years in Spanish oak Sherry casks, and bottled in 1999.
It comes in a Caithness glass decanter accompanied by a stopper, and its own fitted oak presentation case.
Limited to 900 bottles and with a taste described as “Christmas cake-style fruit”, The Macallan Millennium is thought to be greatest aged Macallan whisky, according to Bonhams.
In 1949, the Dbcrb used its own traditional malting floors, heating the air to dry the fermented barley and turn it into malt. Facing a post-war shortage of coal, the distillery added more peat than usual into the mix.
