Macallan 25 in red box?

Postby Sherried Malt » Sun Aug 12, 2007 3:16 am

Does anyone know which bottling this is? Did it precede the Anniversary bottlings in the wooden boxes or is it a more recent bottling? Any idea as to when this was produced?

Thanks to all for the help!

My understanding is that the Macallan 25yo Red Box (identical in shape and size to the Macallan 30yo Blue Box) came after the Wooden Boxes. I am guessing around 2003 maybe a year or two before. All the Macallan 25s that were in the stores where I lived up until the recent new Macallan packaging were in the red box. I have seen the 25yo at auctions that were in the wooden boxes but these were bottled pre-2000. Not sure if there may be regional differences in the packaging. Hope this helps.

Thanks, Ardbeg311. That's very helpful. I had not seen the red box before. Amazing what everyone knows here!

I also noticed that one of our fellow members has one in his inventory...

Thanks again!
