Macallan 78-Year-Old- Red Collection

Macallan Red Collection 78 Year Old. Part of the  Red Collection Series, this special single malt has been matured for 78 years before being bottled in 2020. Aromas of apple, peach, grape, lime, dark chocolate, and dried fruit fill the nose, alongside sweet vanilla sponge cake. The palate offers notes of nutmeg, ginger, dried fruits, prunes, dates, oak spice, and toffee that linger in the finish alongside cinnamon-baked apples.

This whisky reflects our deep respect for time, tradition, and craftsmanship. It is a celebration of the rich range of reds present naturally in The Macallan—in every step of the process.

The distinctive red colour weaves its way through our history, starting with the name of our founder Alexander Reid—literally “The Red”, to The Macallan’s ‘Choice Old’ range released over a century ago in 1903, through to Allan Shiach marking vintage bottles of The Macallan with a red ribbon in the 1980s.



    Sunset on the Spey

  • NOSE

    A fresh fruit medley of apple, peach and grape moving into fresh lime and verbena. Antique oak and soft leather move quickly into a luxurious dark chocolate and dried fruit sensation. The dried fruits are a balance of dates and raisins. Finally, a rich inviting vanilla cake.


    Warming oak spice of nutmeg and ginger open into the rich dried fruits of raisin, prune, date and a hint of almond nuttiness. The oak rich whisky is warming yet dry with powerful treacle toffee and a baked apple sweetness.


    A long thought provoking finish, all of the flavours from the nose and the taste make an appearance in this finish….Remarkable.
