Macallan 50 Year Old 2018 Release

Released in 1983, the first Macallan 50 year old was born into a world of uncertainty. Distilled in 1928, the planet was only a decade removed from a war that had changed it forever, and just 10 more years away from another. Many distilleries across Scotland were forced to close their doors during these periods. Macallan, thankfully was never one of them, but was surely casting a nervous eye across the globe for much of the first half of that 50 year old’s life, secreting it away in their warehouses to quietly and peacefully mature as the world fell apart and was rebuilt around it.

The 2018 release of Macallan 50 year old was a product of a far more optimistic world, not least at the distillery itself.  In Macallan’s own words, it was “created at a time when the distillery had the future in mind,” by increasing the number of stills at their Easter Elchies site, and confidently laying down a whisky to rest for half a century to come.

In those 50 years Macallan has become one of the global sales leaders in the Scotch whisky market, along with Glenfiddich and Glenlivet, and is consistently the most collectible. This Macallan, they believe, is a perfect representation of their “journey of discovery in the modern era.” Almost too serendipitously to be a coincidience, this has been bottled in a year when Macallan is again investing in its future, with its multi-million pound new distillery opening to the public and increasing its number of stills once again. Here's to the next 50 years...

Like all the great Macallan before it, this 50 year old was matured in only the finest handcrafted, hand-selected, sherry-seasoned European oak casks, all the way from the bodegas of Spain.  Allowed to interact for five decades with this wood, it is sure to have an incredible rich and full flavour.

Limited to just 200 bottles, this release is almost impossible to come by. Almost.
