The Macallan Releases Its Largest Fine & Rare Scotch Collection Ever

Oct 23, 2020

Category: Vices

Stretching all the way back to 1926, The Macallan Fine & Rare Collection comprises 56 vintages from eight different decades. Frequently taking the top spots at auction houses around the world, it represents some of the oldest and most sought-after whiskies available — each sourced from a single cask. Having released its largest Fine & Rare Collection to date, The Macallan felt that something special was in order for the 57th vintage.

Aged in a sherry-seasoned American oak cask for 27 years, the 1993 Edition clocks in at a reasonable 50.2% ABV. It features a nose with notes of vanilla fudge and citrus, as well as red cherry, plum, and peach. On the palate, it starts with sweet oak and rich dark chocolate before transitioning into woody spices, licorice, and mint. Finished off with ginger and chocolate, it makes for a premium whisky that’s different yet distinctly The Macallan. In order to recognize the 57 vintages in the series, The Macallan partnered with renowned fashion photographer Tim Walker to document the Fine & Rare Collection. Posed with a bird’s nest, weathered twine, and other natural props, the 1993 Edition is meant to represent the estate’s longstanding relationship with nature. Available now for $18,000, there will only be 256 bottles for sale.
