TWO MACALLANS WALK INTO A BAR; NO ONE WALKS OUT
Cheaper By The Dram NO.03 and NO.04 are two drams from the Macallan distillery. Both of the original bottles were bottled by independent bottlers and they offer two very different styles of whisky from this renowned distillery.
CBTD NO.03 and NO.04
Cheaper By The Dram NO.03 is from a bottle distilled by the Macallan distillery and bottled by JG. Thompson and Co Ltd. as part of the ‘As We Get It’ range. It has no age statement and was bottled at cask strength. Cheaper By The Dram NO.04 is also from the Macallan distillery, distilled in 1971 and bottled by the Hart Brothers after 23 years.
We have paired these two whiskies so that you can try two contrasting drams from the Macallan distillery. Despite being from the same distillery just looking at these two drams shows you that these are two very different whiskies. NO.03 is a rich golden-amber colour, whereas NO.04 is a very deep russet – almost the colour of tea. NO.03 was bottled at cask strength with no age statement and NO.04 was bottled at 43% after 23 years. These two drams really offer a great chance to compare two different styles of vintage whisky side by side.
