Macallan The Coronation
2x35cl/ 55.7, 58.1% abv/ Speyside
Macallan The Coronation, An incredible collectors bottling from Macallan, the third in a range of royal bottlings, with only 1953 sets produced. This set celebrates Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation in 1953, 60 years before the release, and comprises two sherry cask matured whiskies – one from American oak, one from Spanish. This gives a pair of very different looking whiskies, one golden and one deep mahogany, each labelled with a different iconic image of The Queen: The American oak with Cecil Beaton’s famed coronation portrait and the Spanish oak with a 2004 image by Julian Calder.
