Condition note: Box displays a lot of marks and general wear and tear. Retailer sticker on bottle.
From the box: The Macallan 1841 has been created as a replica of an original Macallan, distilled in 1841 during the tenure of Alexander Reid, founder of the distillery, and bottled for James Priest and James Davidson, joint proprietors of The Macallan from 1847 to 1851. The bottle, complete with the flaws common to glassware of its time, the labels, and the nose and flavour of the whisky (especially citrus and summer fruits and peat smoke), mirror the original as closely as possible.
Distillery background: The Macallan Distillery was founded in 1824 by Alexander Reid, who had farmed the land around Easter Elchies for some years as a tenant of the Earl of Seafield. James Priest and James Davidson purchased the Macallan Distillery in 1847, but their partnership was dissolved in 1851. From this we know that the 1841 was bottled between 6 and 10 years old.
