Macallan, Replica 1841 (bottled 2003), 41,7 %

Review #310
This is a replica of an original bottling for Priest and Davidson (owners of Macallan from 1841-1851) from 1841 in form of bottle, label and flavors. I haven’t tried any 1840s Macallan, but this smells very much like modern day Macallan. Fruity with a touch of spices. Although I sense a bit of peat after a couple of minutes in the glass.

The taste is much more old school! Earth and a bit of peat mixes with some sweet raisins. Funny combination. Some citrus as well, and the wood really shows in the finish. Wood, some dried fruits and spices. Lime in the far end.

A funny dram, but the price tag for this is just ridicules. The farmer touch is interesting and different for Macallan, but leave this to Kilchoman and the other distilleries that excels in this, and give me a normal sherried Macallan! I will give this 85/100 (21/22/21/21).
