Macallan Archival Series Folio No. 6 (700ml)

The Macallan Archival Series is an iconic series created to commemorate their legendary print, press and advertising campaigns of the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. 

The sixth release in The Macallan Archival Series, Folio 6 celebrates a wonderfully witty advert, which cleverly featured ‘The Chairman’ as a Scotsman dancing the Highland fling over a pen and brush, the symbols of the advertising team of Holmes and Salaman.

At the time, The Macallan Chairman was Allan Shiach, who as a writer himself, was known to suggest the occasional idea to the brand’s creative team. Naturally, the two admen tended to bridle a little at these suggestions from above – but of course when it was The Macallan Chairman they could hardly demur.

Brows were furrowed. Misgivings were muttered. But the admen stuck to the creative task, and ultimately chose to feature the Chairman himself in their response to the gauntlet he had thrown down. The resulting campaign remains one of the brand’s most memorable, and to many, the most amusing.

Autumnal auburn in colour, The Macallan Archival Series Folio 6 presents seasonal aromas of orange and ginger followed by poached pear and vanilla with celebratory hints of cinnamon, nutmeg, fresh oak and chocolate. On the palate, oranges and sultanas dance with ginger and soft milk chocolate. While the finish brings a crescendo of ginger warmth that makes this the perfect dram to enjoy whether you’re dancing at the ‘ceilidh’ or sitting by the fireside. Polly Logan The Macallan's Whisky Maker.
