The Macallan 50 Years Old Scotch Whisky

Mar 23, 2018

Category: Vices

Vintage whisky is always a spirit worth contemplating before each sip. Oftentimes, they’re half our age or older, maturing in oak for years until the time is right. In this particular instance, Macallan felt that five decades was the right amount of time for this particular batch of incredibly smooth and lively 50-Year vintage.

According to the distillery, this special vintage was created at a time when Macallan was considering what the future would hold – and what would be cause for celebration after another half century in the business. It was initially laid to rest more than 50 years ago in handcrafted European oak sherry seasoned casks from Spain. Such ancient wood shaped the whisky’s character appropriately – delivering a rich and complex sip complete with sweet oak vanilla and blackcurrant character, a palate full of fudge, toffee and black peppercorn, and a viscous finish complemented with sublet peat.
