Product DescriptionMacallan Lalique 72 Yrs 750ml
The Macallan 72 Years Old in Lalique is a celebration of the collaboration of masters from across the fields of whisky, crystal, architecture, construction and craftmanship and marks a new beginning in The Macallan story. This exceptionally rare whisky is presented in a unique and bespoke crystal decanter and presentation case that are defined by the outstanding architectural complexity of the New Macallan home. For nearly two centuries the mastery of exceptional whisky making has been at the heart of The Macallan Estate and the new Distillery and Visitor Experience, designed by internationall acclaimed architects, Rogers Stirk Harbour + partners, embodies the care, passion and superior craftsmanship that goes into every drop of The Macallan.
Lalique has captured the character of the new Distillery in crystal, with the horizon of the decanter rising and falling in reflection of the roof line and incorporating the clean lines and natural curves. Each decanter is encased in a bespoke presentation case inspired by the interior of the Distillery, with a curved wooden roof over the decanter, and a footprint taken directly from the circular layout of the three new still houses. Designed by Burgess Studio, the case is handcrafted from the finest materials by The Royal Warrant holding cabinet makers, NEJ Stevenson. Distilled in the 1940s, this peerless spirit began its journey to maturation during the optimistic post Second World War period - and this atmosphere of reinvention inspired the new Distillery and the whisky and design of The Genesis Decanter.
“For its seventy-two years of maturation, the deceptively light colour hints that this is not an ordinary single malt. Reminiscent of a time gone by, it carries an exquisite balance of strong, sweet oak with the peaty spirit shaping its refined character. The whisky delivers surprise after surprise as aromas of fruit follow distinctive hints of peat, all the way through to the back of the mouth where it is finished off with a lingering hint of rich fruit and oak. Although delicate throughout all aspects, it provides an intense experience which acknowledges the distinguished history of The Macallan.” Nick Savage, The Macallan Master Distiller
