This is the second oldest vintage ever released by luxury whiskey maker The Macallan

Iconic luxury whisky maker The Macallan has joined once again with French luxury crystal house Lalique to launch the third decanter in The Macallan in Lalique Six Pillars Collection. The Macallan in Lalique Finest Cut decanter contains an exceptionally rare 57-year-old single malt whisky valued at $15,000. A limited edition of just 400 decanters have been produced, each individually numbered and available in selected outlets in the USA, UK, Europe and Asia.

This third decanter in The Macallan in Lalique Six Pillars Collection is inspired by The Macallans Finest Cut, that fraction of the new make spirit which is filled into casks for maturation. At The Macallan, this fraction is a mere 16%; it is the heart of the run, the best of the best, delivered at a very slow rate of distillation to maximize flavor and deliver the distinctively rich, fruity, viscous character of The Macallans new make spirit.

Designed exclusively for The Macallan by the legendary French crystal house LALIQUE, The Finest Cut decanters have been individually numbered and produced in a very limited quantity only 72 of the 400 launched worldwide will be available in the US, ensuring that this introduction will follow in the footsteps of its two predecessors — a 50 Years Old Macallan celebrating the exceptional oak casks and a 55 Years Old Macallan inspired by the distillerys insistence of natural colour — and become an extraordinary collectors item.

The price? A mere $15,000.00.

TASTING NOTES:
