Macallan Genesis Decanter 72-Year Scotch Whisky

Jun 4, 2018

Category: Vices

After 72 years of letting it age, accrue wisdom (and taste), Macallan is revealing an Aurelian liquor that’s worth its weight in gold. To celebrate opening a state-of-the-art $190 million distillery, the Whiskey brand Macallan has released the Genesis Decanter, which holds one of the best whiskeys ever produced by one of the best distilleries around.

Encased in a bespoke carrying case, constructed in the image of the new distillery’s interior, a curved wooden roof over the decanter a la the domed exterior of the building, and other features that emulate the Wonka-esque whiskey factory. Originally distilled in the 1940s, the septuagenerian scotch has ripened, untouched, until this year. Just 600 decanters have been bottled, the liquid gold sports a sweet oak taste with a soft vanilla and the peaty spirit to which we are used in Macallan whiskey. If you have truly expensive taste, this whiskey is for you.

Purchase: $60,000
