I don't know how many were produced, but the whole Replica range includes:
In addition there was a bottling only for Asia which wasn't exactly a replica and not so limited either.
It is called 1851 Inspiration.
The most valuable Replica which generally commands the best prices is the 1874 which TWE currently lists at around â‚¬500
The 1841 had an original price of around 90 GBP (â‚¬135) and if you can get one at around 100 - 120 GBP then this would be an acceptable price.

I vaguely remember reading about the fake macallens that was found in Italy and which was used as basis for some or all(?) of the replicas. I have a bottle of the 1861 replica.
So, is it correct to say that I owned a replica of a faked 1861 macallen? I also remember that the tasting notes of these replicas, even though based on face ones, were very good.

Which would just be silly, save for the fact that the Edrington group knows this -- in fact they knew they were fake before anyone else but the seller!
But it goes beyond silly to become borderline dishonest considering the Edrington group still advertises these copies of fake whisky on their website.
At best, they should withdraw the replicas, realistically they could at least stop promoting their sale on their site and come clean with the whole story. I doubt even this is going to happen. But perhaps you can reconsider your desire to purchase a bottling that is nothing but a testimonial to the short-sighted greed of the owners of the Macallan.
Incongruously, very fresh. Fudge with vanilla essence and pistachio nuts.
Silky. Fresh, appetising. sweet but not cloying. Light, fresh, delicate, notes of orange-blossom honey.
Very gentle acidity gives balancing dryness.
Delicious whisky, of true sophistication and style. Tasted blindfold, it seems a perfect whisky for today, not an evocation of the past. I would re-package it as 2041.
