50-Year-Old Macallan whisky sets record at the world’s biggest whisky sale

It’s not new that we have highlighted the enviable distinction earned by the Macallan Single Malts, but as the 50-year-old bottle of Macallan whisky sells for a record $18,650 at the world’s biggest whisky sale in Glasgow, it becomes difficult to escape the vintage aura. This rare whiskey was one of more than 700 lots in the McTear’s Rare and Collectible whisky sale and was bottled from the three barrels distilled between 1926 and 1928. This rare and hard-to-get blend was won by an anonymous New York bidder who beat out other rivals over the telephone.
