Top up your drinks cabinet: The Macallan 50 Years Old
Need a new go-to tipple? We’ve got the thing for you. Laid down in oak sherry seasoned casks from Spain and left to mature for five decades, this limited edition whiskey boasts sweet oak vanilla and blackcurrant characters and a long (and slightly dry) finish. The presentation box – a luxury solid oak case with an etched face inlaid with a matte gold badged age statement – is worth buying alone. But act fast – there are only 200 bottles available.
