Macallan just announced a 72-year-old bottle of whiskey in celebration of their new distillery. Only 600 individually numbered 700ml decanters will be available worldwide for a price tag of  $60,000 USD per decanter. Lalique designed the Genesis Decanter that takes inspiration from the Distillery, while Burgess Studio handcrafted the case from sourced timbers. Nick Savage, a master distiller for Macallan said, ‘For its seventy-two years of maturation, the deceptively light color hints that this is not an ordinary single malt. Reminiscent of a time gone by, it carries an exquisite balance of strong, sweet oak with the peaty spirit shaping its refined character. The whiskey delivers surprise afters surprise as aromas of fruit follow distinctive hints of peat, all the way through to the back of the mouth where it is finished off with a lingering hint of rich fruit and oak. Although delicate throughout all aspects, it provides an intense experience which acknowledges the distinguished history of The Macallan.”
