A grand dram

The Macallan, makers of some of the finest single malts, teamed with the masters of glassmaking, Lalique, to create an elegant new  $12,000  home for its very rare 55-year-old whiskey. The “natural colour” decanter was designed with a stunning amber-hued stopper and a subtle colour gradient to enhance the spirit held within. And what a spirit! Undisturbed for over half a century in sherry-oak casks at the distillery’s Easter Elchies House in Speyside, Scotland, the whiskey reveals a marvellous complexity of dried fruits and peat smoke with a citrus finish.

  1. Sorry, I have to correct you – as a Scot from the Speyside region. We don’t make whiskey in Scotland. The Irish and the Yanks make whiskey and the Scots and Canadians make whisky. It’s wrong to refer to Scotch as whiskey.
