Macallan 72 The Genesis Decanter. Described as ‘a celebration of the collaboration of masters from across the fields of whisky, crystal, architecture, construction and craftsmanship.
#Macallan 72 Years Old in Lalique – The Genesis Decanter, bottled at 42% abv, is limited to only 600 individually numbered decanters worldwide.
Only 600 decanters of The Macallan 72 Years Old were released in 2018 and 2019. However, this is the oldest whisky ever released by The Macallan and is presented in a bespoke crystal decanter hand-crafted by Lalique. Furthermore, the Genesis Lalique Decanter is the oldest ever official bottling of The Macallan, and is the most highly anticipated whisky release of the century. Also, the majority of these rare decanters have disappeared into private collections, or into luxury bars, restaurants, and hotels across the World. Only a handful of bottles are being released to retail customers, and demand will greatly exceed supply. Moreover, whether you are a connoisseur, collector, or investor, the Macallan 72 The Genesis Decanter will be the ultimate addition to your whisky collection or investment portfolio.
Official Tasting Notes:
Colour – Golden Amber
Nose – A delicate peat starts, leading to a soft, aged oak smoke. A body of refreshing citrus lemons and green apples, with a background of vanilla pods and raisins, with the smallest hint of ginger.
Palate – Delicate peat smoke combines with a soft vanilla, and a surprising sweet oak smoke. A gentle wood spice combines with a delicate peat smoke, which gradually fades to leave a viscous mouth coating of citrus fruits and subtle green apples.
Finish – Medium and fruity, with a sweet oaky mouth feel.
