MACALLAN N°6 Lalique 43%
Macallan (The) N ° 6 Lalique celebrates the union between Lalique's mastery of crystal and the art of whisky making. This single malt has benefited from aging in sherry first-fill oak barrels, made in Spain by master craftsmen from Jerez de la Frontera. They give this whisky a unique character and flavour. Its aromatic palette is dominated by spices, dried fruits and orange flavours. Suffice to say that it seduces with its quintessential Macallan character. It is presented in a sublime case and bottled in a decanter of high quality crystal.
Extremly Limited Edition.

The Macallan Distillery was founded in 1824 by Alexander Reid, a barley farmer and schoolteacher, on a plateau above the River Spey in Speyside, North East Scotland. The original name of this area until 1400, was "Maghellan", taken from the Gallic word "magh" meaning fertile land and "Ellan" from the monk St. Macallan Estae. Farmers have been making whiskies on Speyside farms in this region for centuries, using the surplus barley during the quieter winter months. Today The Macallan's reputation is based on a product of exceptional quality and distinctiveness, founded with a set of guiding principles : place, people and passion. For each edition, the quality of the whisky largely depends on the oak barrels in which it is matured. This distillery carefully selects the best spirit from the stills. Only 16% is kept, creating a rich and concentrated distillate, making it one of the best in the industry.
