Macallan-Just-Announced-a-52-Year-Old-Scotch-That-Costs-as-Much-as-a-German-Sportscar

As you’re well aware by now, we’re big fans of whiskies from all over the world. We’ve written individual bucket lists for bourbons, scotches and even Japanese whiskies. The Macallan just announced the release of a new bottle that we’re not even going to bother putting on the whiskey bucket list because it’s going to be damn near impossible to find. The Macallan 52 is, as the name implies, a more than half-decade old bottle, and it’s going to carry a price tag equivalent to over $1,000 per year–$53,500. In other words, this one bottle is going to cost more than a German sportscar, which also boils down to over $3,100/shot at retail prices. Since we have no hope of ever trying it (only 250 bottles were made and only 42 are going to end up stateside), we’re going to let Sarah Burgess, The Macallan whisky maker, take it away. “After being left to mature for fifty-two long years in one exceptional, hand crafted European oak sherry seasoned cask, this wonderfully rare single malt is full of rich spicy flavors and has a beautiful ruby mahogany natural color. Bottled at an ABV of 48% where all the flavors became perfectly balanced, The Macallan 52 years old is an outstanding addition to our expanding range of unique, classic-aged whiskies and is a testament to the harmony created through the mastery of wood and spirit.” Let us know if you actually get to try some.
