Description

A bottle of The Macallan 1951 Single Highland Malt Scotch Whisky, matured for around 50 years and bottled from two sherry butts in 2001. This vintage release was a precursor to the Fine & Rare series.

This rare example has a creamy yellow label rather than the creamy white paper which was on the bottle that was available on general release.

Our research has shown that a handful of bottles of the 1951 with the creamy yellow label were made as gifts to VIPs.

This bottle was originally given by The Macallan to a prominent family in Scotland who later gave it as a retirement present to the seller's father.

This is one of 632 bottles.

This Macallan 1951 sold at our online auction for £19,000
