Re: Having your collection signed - Whats your thoughts...

THE MACALLAN 1841 REPLICA

I have a chance to get my hands on a bottle of The Macallan 1841 Replica for a hopefully resonable price.

Who has tried it and what are your thoughts??

It is rated well in the whisky mag tasting notes!

I should be able to get it for under $160AUS delivered.

That's about 78 Pounds.

I had to get the Caoran from the UK as well, As we also struggle to get a good variety of whiskies here in Australia.

Royal Mile Whiskies usually stocks it along with The Whisky Exchange.

I purchased it as a virgin whisky drinker 'leap of faith' and it was well worth it.
