I checked the Macallan website, and they're selling the 1985 with no mention of an '86 bottle.
I would assume the Macallan website would be selling the newest bottle before a small liquor store in Florida.
So, my question is: is this a fake or is my understanding that Macallan only releases odd numbered years completely wrong? (or both?)
However, I understand that the 1985 heralded a major change. Previously, the 18yo releases stated on the label that the whisky was distilled in that year, i.e. the 1984 contained whisky from vattings that were all distilled in 1984.
However, the 1985 (apparently) states that the whisky was distilled in 1985 or earlier - i.e. there is now whisky OLDER than 18 years in the vatting.
I haven't seen this for myself yet, I only heard about it somewhere, so apologies if my assertions above are incorrect!
SPMA8600 Macallan 1986 18 J. 43% # 82,00 € NEU!
The Macallan website doesn't mention of 1986 bottle, because there are many stocks of 1985 , so they have to promo 1985.
My friend tells that the agents in taiwan of the Macallan had imported 1986 18y, but they have some stocks of 1985, so they has not yet display 1986 18y in their store.
