Macallan Inspiration 1851

Postby Protektoratsrunkarl » Sun Dec 16, 2007 1:23 pm

Det här är en historia om ett riktigt lurendrejeri...

Vi ska utomunions till veckan, och på flygbolagets taxfree hittade jag följande:
http://www.themacallan.com/macallanPort ... Free/1851/

Där berättar destilleriet hur man funnit en flaska whiskey från just 1851 och att "the 1851 Inspiration has been painstakingly handcrafted to recreate an original Macallan bottle from that era."

Taxfree-pris är DKK 595 i motsats till DKK 1595 i butik, med andra ord en prisskillnad på omkring SEK 1200! Intressant, tänkte jag, och hade i princip beställt en när jag råkade springa på följande whiskey-forum på internet:

"They based it on a bottle from 1851 that they bought for a lot a lot o' money at auction. It was only after sampling, making a copy, marketing it and shipping it all over the world that they realised it was a fake."

"Macallan put out their replica series, only to find well and truly after the event that their source bottlings were fakes."

"Since they no longer could hang their hat on the "replica" mantle, they elected to coin it "inspiration" instead."


Det blir en Martell XO istället...
