Celebrate each and every year with Macallan’s 55-year-old single malt. Sure to lift your spirits, this tribute to legendary craftsmanship is bottled in a stunning Lalique decanter with an amber crystal stopper. Scheduled to release in January 2008 as an individually-numbered edition of 420, the Natural Coulour decanter is valued at $12,000.

Undisturbed for over half a century at Easter Elchies House in Speyside, Scotland, this cask-strength (40.1%) beauty has matured in a sherry-oaked splendor. Dark rosewood in color, it exhibits heady aromatic notes of sweet dried fruits, a hint of pest-smoke, and lingering touches of citrus.

Smooth and spicy on the finish. Just like you.
