Launched in 2002, the vision for Fine and Rare was simple yet impossible to imitate: identify the very best of The Macallan oldest maturing stock and launch the greatest range of vintage Single Malt ever released. The Macallan's master Whisky Maker, Bob Dalgarno, and his team assessed over 500 casks and their selection revealed an extraordinary diversity of colour, aroma and flavour. The result: no other Single Malt has the depth or range of vintage bottlings to rival The Macallan.
