Ballot Open: The Macallan James Bond 60th Anniversary
We are very excited to open our ballot for the much sought-after The Macallan James Bond 60th Anniversary releases. We have one bottle of each: Decade Two and Decade Five. The ballot commences at 12pm on Tuesday 18th April, and concludes at 12pm on Thursday 20th April. See below for how to enter.
The range consists of six bottles to represent six decades, with each design encapsulating that particular era of Bond. The expression is the same across all bottlings, and has been developed by The Macallan Master Whisky Maker, Kirsteen Campbell, to reflect the character of James Bond. A robust force of nature defined by his Scottish heritage, Bond shares many a quality with The Macallan. Bottled at 43.7% abv.
Expect aromas of zesty lemons and limes, with sherbet, vanilla, coconut and dried fruits. The palate is full of orange sherbet, oak, and a hint of ginger spice before evolving with flavours of dark chocolate, apple pie and honey drizzle. The finish is sweet and long, with complex layers.
Celebrating Roger Moore's incarnation of Bond, the bottling is adorned with with sketches and storyboards from The Spy Who Loved Me (1977), Stromborg’s Atlantis marine research lab, and various space station concepts from Moonraker (1979).
The fifth bottling has a design harking back to early Daniel Craig Bond - featuring the exciting car sequence from Casino Royale (2006), and a digitally sketched rooftop chase in Quantum Of Solace (2008).
