The Macallan 52 Years Old Scotch Whisky

Dec 19, 2018

Category: Vices

Walk into any purveyor of alcoholic spirits and you’ll find that, when it comes to scotch, The Macallan is always amongst the finest. So whenever the distiller announces that they’re releasing something a bit on the rarer side of things, we like to keep an eye out. And that’s why this special release, The Macallan 52 Years Old, caught our attention.

This rare spirit isn’t even a blend — the whole batch comes from a single cask, making this an ultra-rare single malt offering with only 250 bottles in existence. And once those are gone, they’re gone forever. Aged in the same warehouse The Macallan has used since 1824, this oak-aged, sherry-seasoned scotch boasts deep aromas of cherry, dark chocolate, citrus, and peat smoke. And the palate is said to feature a similar blend of smokey sweetness and spices. Bottles are available now but they’ll cost a pretty penny — in the neighborhood of $49,000 each.

Purchase: $49,000
