The Macallan unveils 52 Years Old single malt

Edrington Group's The Macallan has unveiled a 52-years-old single malt, limited to only 250 numbered bottles.

The single malt has been matured for fifty-two years in one first fill European oak sherry seasoned cask from Spain. 

Whisky Maker for The Macallan Sarah Burgess says: “After being left to mature for fifty-two long years in one exceptional, hand crafted European oak sherry seasoned cask, this wonderfully rare single malt is full of rich spicy flavours and has a beautiful ruby mahogany natural colour. Bottled at an ABV of 48% where all the flavours became perfectly balanced, The Macallan 52-years-old is an outstanding addition to our expanding range of unique, classic-aged whiskies and is a testament to the harmony created through the mastery of wood and spirit. With only 250 individually numbered bottles available worldwide, this is a highly limited and expertly crafted release which will be desired the world over by whisky lovers and luxury connoisseurs.”

Bottled at an ABV of 48% The Macallan 52-years-old is presented in a solid oak box featuring an etched face inlaid with a matte gold badged age statement, reflecting the designs for The Macallan 25 Years Old and The Macallan 50 Years Old of yesteryear. 

The Macallan 52 Years Old 2018 limited edition release will be available from December 2018 and will be limited to 250 individually numbered bottles worldwide, with an estimated retail price of £38,500 / $50,000 per 70cl bottle.
