The Macallan has announced its 50 Years Old release for 2018, an exquisite single-malt whiskey limited to just 200 bottles.

After having spent at least five decades in handcrafted European oak sherry seasoned casks from Spain, this ‘new make’ spirit is a rich and complex whiskey with a “vibrant amber”color, clocking in at ABV 44.0%.

The rare concoction presents itself with a nose of wood vanillas, ripe blackcurrants, and an earthy tone, while on the palate it offers hints of oak, fudge and toffee, black peppercorns, orange peel and figs. The finish is “a viscous mouth coating, long and slightly dry from the subtle peat notes.” Are you drooling yet?
