Macallan just opened a brand new, state-of-the-art $200 million distillery. How did Macallan choose to celebrate? By releasing the oldest single malt they’ve ever bottled–a 72 year old expression that comes in The Genesis Decanter by Lalique and is presented in a wood display case. It’s worth nothing that both the crystal decanter and the case were custom made to mirror the lines of the distillery and each is more opulent and likely more pricey than anything else on our bar cart. In terms of the whiskey itself, Macallan describes it (sadly, no one would sign off on us expensing a pour) as having “aromas of peat, lemons, green apples, vanilla, raisins and ginger, along with tastes of wood spice, peat smoke and citrus, and a finish of rich fruit and oak.” Given what some of the rarer bourbons and whiskies are going for on the secondary market these days–and the fact that a single pour costs $12,000 at a Beverly Hills bar–if you weren’t able to secure one of the 600 bottles at retail, expect to pay well into the six figures if you absolutely have to have The Macallan 72 Years Old in Lalique.
