The Macallan 72 Years Old is presented in a bespoke, handcrafted Lalique, The Genesis Decanter. This limited-edition expression is an extraordinarily rare single malt. The Macallan 72 Years Old in Lalique, The Genesis Decanter is limited to 600 decanters globally, with 156 allocated to the United States.
Each 750ml decanter is priced at $65,000 USD and will be available in August of this year. Any operator connected (and lucky) enough to secure a decanter for their venue can rest assured they can sell a one-ounce pour for well over $2,600.
“The Macallan 72 Years Old is an incredibly rare single malt defined by years of dedication and craftsmanship. As the oldest whisky we have ever bottled, this is a truly momentous occasion to commemorate our remarkable new distillery,” says Nick Savage, The Macallan Master Distiller. “Although delicate throughout all aspects, it provides an intense experience which acknowledges the distinguished history of The Macallan.”
Notes from the Producer
Color: Golden amber
Nose: A delicate peat starts, leading to a soft, aged oak smoke. A body of refreshing citrus lemons and green apples, with a background of vanilla pods and raisins, with the smallest hint of ginger.
Palate: Delicate peat smoke combines with a soft vanilla, and a surprising sweet oak smoke. A gentle wood spice combines with a delicate peat smoke, which gradually fades to leave a viscous mouth coating of citrus fruits and subtle green apples.
Finish: Medium and fruity, with a sweet oaky mouth feel.
