Though they were already one of the top names on Scotland’s long list of top-tier distilleries, The Macallan hasn’t slowed down even a bit. In fact, over the last few years, they’ve opened a new, magnificent distillery in the Speyside region and have continuously impressed with outstanding scotch release after outstanding scotch release. Now, they’re raising the bar yet again with their 1950 Exceptional Single Cask Scotch.
Aged over the course of a whopping 69 years, the brand is calling this single malt whisky the “pinnacle” of their high-end range — which is more than enough to get those in the know interested. But the fact that these bottles come from first-fill sherry butt casks — lending the spirit unique aromas and flavors of oak and peach — makes the release even more drool-worthy. Available this August, only 336 bottles will be available for sale, so you’ll want to act quickly if this release sparks your interest. But you’ll also need deep pockets, as they’re going to cost a whopping $58,000 apiece.
