For the collector that has it all â€“ glittering Macallan x Lalique decanters included â€“ a trophy that bucks the bottle aesthetic is always worth a treasured spot in the display case.
This makes Macallanâ€™s latest collaboration piece with the crystal-workers a great candidate. Christened the Macallan M Black, the ebony-in-matte decanter shouts â€˜ash and smokeâ€™ to the sensibilities, a nod to the subtle peat of the liquid within.
Macallan claims the faceted form required deep research and prototyping to make a reality â€“ in other words, many bottles were harmed in the making of this mature flaskâ€¦ hopefully empty ones. We havenâ€™t had a chance to take a sip or whiff yet, so until that comes to pass, these pictures are what we have to share.
