The "Archival Series" from Macallan is a limited edition, balloted release which recreates the old advertising styles of The Macallan.
Released in 2019, "Folio 4" is the 4th release in the Archival Series, and is presented in a tin book style package, which includes a hardback book.
I say :
What a load of crap and great example of everything that is wrong with the whisky world at the moment.
The information is scant as to what is in the bottle, a balloted release to add to the air of mystery.
How old are the casks, type, fill, probably seasoned for half an hour in a sherry cask no doubt?
Macallan is taking people for mugs, 124 proud owners of a bottle and not a single bottle opened at the moment, with a singe bottle showing empty only a handful of rates and as usual for this sort of thing not a solitary tasting note in sight.
Come to think of it if it is balloted then how come some `lucky` people manage to get 2 or 3 bottles of the stuff
How nice is this stuff, can anyone provide a few pointers?
Why is it worth a 4 figure sum, based on what exactly????
