Macallan 50 Year Old Lalique Crystal Decanter (MC)
MC3500-130*

The year 2006 saw Macallan release a 50 year old single malt in a Lalique crystal bottle.
The 470 Lalique decanters are hand-blown and made to resemble the Spanish sherry barrels in which the Scotch rested for five decades. The whisky is packaged in a leather and silk box, with a crystal stopper and a leather-bound collectors guide with The Macallan’s Easter Elchies House Stamp of approval.

The Macallan is a singular brand and the definitive highland single malt. Named after a church that is now in ruins on the property, the Macallan's history as a distillery dates to the early 1700's and became a legal distillery in 1824.
The Macallan develops it distinctive character through the Golden Promise barley, which is low yielding and flavorful, brought forth by a particular combination of yeasts. Small specially shaped stills intensify these flavors and round out the rich bodies of these malts and the direct heat of gas burners during distillation helps caramelize the malt. A narrow cut maintains quality control by throwing out many of the impurities created by the violence of distillation. But it is the sherry cask that makes the archetypal Macallan.

Macallan

The Macallan Distillery is probably one of the most famous brands in the whisky industry today. The distillery is three miles from Craigellachie which is the heart of the Speyside region. Even though Macallan is located in the heart of Speyside they have labeled it a Highland malt. The distillery was founded in 1824 and was named the ‘Elchies Distillery’. Macallan has 8 wash stills and 18 spirit stills and produces around 8,000,000 litres a year. In 2001 Macallan opened up a new visitor center. The tour that Macallan provides is very in depth and is great if you are just starting out and learning all about whisky. It shows all the processes and the maturation all the way down to microscopic slides so you can understand what happens. It is worth visiting.


Colour: Burnished Gold. Nose: Heady top notes of cumin, cardamom and darkest marashino. Palate: All encompassing and aromatic, with dark prunes and plain chocolate. Finish: Very long finish with a sherry oak signature and a hint of peat smoke.
