Got $50,000 laying around and need a centerpiece for your whiskey collection? The Macallan has just announced a 52 years old, an expression matured in first fill European oak sherry seasoned casks from Spain. The Macallan describes the 52 years old:
"Rich cherry and dark chocolate open on the nose with a hint of antique oak before wisps of floral orange blossom combine with delicate layers of peat smoke. The palate leads with flavours of rich fruit and dark chocolate fondant soon making way for hints of peat smoke that combine with cinnamon and ginger from the wood spices. The finish is long with notes of sweet oak, cherry and blackcurrant mellowing out to a floral and lightly peated finish."
250 of these bottles will be available this month at select retailers across the globe and each bottle is individually numbered.
