Macallan 1990 MI (70cl, 46.0%)


A bottling for the 30th anniversary of Moon Import. This italian bottler shows up with a 20 years old Macallan. A very rare and exclusive whisky!

Moon Import is one of those legendary independent bottlers from Italy that established a strong reputation before the rest of the world discovered single malts. Moon Import seems mostly dormant nowadays, but ranges from the past include 'In The Pink' (bottled in 2000), 'Horae Solaris' (bottled in 1998), 'Seven Seas' (bottled in 1997), 'De Viris illustribus' (bottled in 1995), 'Cars' and 'Ships'. Older series are 'Costumes' and 'Animals' (both 1988).

Founded in 1824, The Macallan was one of the first distilleries in Scotland to be legally licensed. Since then, The Macallan has built a reputation as one of the world's truly great single malt whiskies. To fully appreciate The Macallan, we must understand the contributing influences of Scotland, Spain and North America, and of their respective natural raw materials, together with the methods and the craftsmanship, perfected over the generations, that combine to give such outstanding quality and distinctive character.

‘Macallan’ is most likely derived from two Gaelic words -‘Magh’ meaning a fertile piece of ground and ‘Ellan’, meaning ‘of St Fillan’, an Irish born monk who travelled widely in Scotland spreading Christianity during the eighth century.
