Glasgow Whisky Recently Added A Macallan 30-Year-Old To Its Line Up

By Hannah Kanik / November 27, 2020

Glasgow Whisky recently added a new single malt to its limited edition Munros collection of single cask whiskies: the Macallan 30-Year-Old, presented in a special Glencairn Crystal bespoke decanter. The Munros collection is said to pay homage to the Scottish mountains, “standing over 3000 ft tall with each single malt whisky in the series being as unique in character as each Munro mountain.” 

This limited edition Macallan 30-Year-Old single malt has been matured in a sherry wood cask and is said to have “an enveloping heady mix of spiciness and warm aromatics.” The decanter, meanwhile, is handcrafted by Scottish family-owned Glencairn Crystal Studio and produced from high-quality lead-free crystal with double-sided engraving. On the back of the bottle, there’s an engraved Scottish mountain range. These engravings are infilled with white and copper.

“We are passionate about single malts and are excited to be adding a new premium level to our much-loved Munros single cask collection, starting with this superb Macallan 30-Year-Old,” Rory Taylor, Glasgow Whisky Sales Manager said, in a prepared statement. “We intend to release a new Munros super premium single malt each year going forwards.”

Kenny Tweeddale, Glencairn’s New Product Development Manager, added “we are delighted to partner with Glasgow Whisky to honour our Scottish heritage by bringing the Munro mountains to life with this very special decanter. Our task was to create an elegant decanter that allowed the whisky to do the talking, whilst celebrating the Munros, so we made this exception Macallan integral to the overall design with the mountain range emerging through the liquid. We look forward to working on more Munro themed decanters to come.” 

The premium range Macallan 30-Year-Old is available in just 133 decanters at a price of £5,000, around $6,660 USD, and is being made released exclusively to the South East Asia market. It has been bottled at 49.1% ABV, and you’ll fine some official tasting notes for it below.
