The Macallan in Lalique

The Golden Age Of Travel: The Motor Car

An age of bold steps and innovation, when automobiles evolved into an expression of luxury and art.

The Motor Car

A Luxurious Experience

During the 1930s the automobile business flourished and made strides that would set the tone of the industry for decades to come. Automobiles became a form of art, a way for owners to value elegance and innovation. Distilled in 1937 the whisky relives an age of bold steps and innovation, and creates its own art through complex and invigorating notes of polished antique wood on the nose, similar to the finishes of a luxurious 1930s motor car.

Each limited edition decanter in the series is encased within a beautiful premium leather presentation box created by leather masters Piñavall in Ubrique, Spain. Piñavallis are renowned for their work with some of the world’s leading fashion brands. In keeping with the Golden Age of Travel idea, the box consciously evokes design elements of classic 1930s travel trunks and luggage and for the motor car edition is racing green in colour, to reflect the automobile theme.

Amber sunset in colour, with a velvet sweetness and delights of sweet oak vanilla pods, this exquisite whisky is balanced with a distinct, yet supremely delicate peat smoke. The unexpected, but welcome peat element retreats to reveal a lingering smoothness on the palate. Flavours of peach, dried apricots and orange with hints of dark chocolate come to life in a gentle build, leaving a lasting impression on the palate.


The finish is intricate, yet incredibly smooth with a long, velvet-like combination of the sweet scents of peach and zesty berries, with a subtle edge of peat. This whisky highlights the commitment to selecting the finest quality spirit from our stills – the finest cut that helps create the signature viscous mouth-feel and fruity flavour synonymous with The Macallan.
