The Macallan has released a scotch that’s 65 years old, comes in a crystal decanter, and includes tasting notes of honey-dipped vanilla, cracked black pepper, cloves, and roasted cocoa beans. Now, we understand that kids these days are spending all of their money on booze, but this might be outside the price range of—almost everyone. If you’re part of the select few who can swing it, you can own this piece of scotch snobbery, dubbed the Peerless Spirit, for $35,000.
The Scotch is part of The Macallan’s Six Pillars Collection, which is a partnership with French crystal outlet Lalique. Peerless Spirit comes in a special-edition Lalique decanter, and only 450 have been produced.
“This stunning collection of decanters is the result of two kindred spirits, rooted in a shared passion for craftsmanship, detail, and mastery,” The Macallan brand director Raul Gonzalez said in a prepared statement. “This sixth and final release continues to showcase the unwavering commitment of both the masters of Lalique and The Macallan to create beautiful and desirable objets d’art.”
