These Scotch whiskeys mentioned below are the most expensive whiskeys that are for those who have (unreasonably deep pockets), but in reality, for most of those paying these enormous sums, such a purchase represents an investment. Check out the three most expensive scotch whiskey below.
1. Isabella’s Islay (Price: $6,200,000): Isabella Original edition sits as the most expensive scotch available with a retail cost of $6.2 million. This ridiculously expensive single malt is that much of its cost is a due to the diamond-encrusted decanter. The decanter has 8,500 diamonds and 300 rubies for good measure. The taste is unknown as no deep-pocketed connoisseur has been bold enough to pay the seven-digit for this whiskey.
Macallan “M” (1940):(Price: $631, 850) Another variety that remains shrouded in some mystery, but its cost seems to be wholly a reflection of its quality. The Macallan “M” is a single-malt, that has been matured for over 70 years to put this into perspective, the finest Scotch most of us will ever taste. The Macallan “M” is rich in a resin-y and raisin-y flavor, with the body, filled out by cherries and fruity overtones with the tobacco-flavored finish.
Macallan’s Lalique Cire Perdue (1946):(Price: $460, 000): The Scotch is now a 68-year old single-malt, that comes in a floral pattern glass bottle decanter. The initial taste has a wide breadth of flavors: peat smoke, orange peel, cedarwood, and muscovado sugar, spiced with cinnamon and cloves. The flavor then transitions into tastes of rosin, blood orange, cocoa, walnuts, treacle, finishing with subtle notes of dark chocolate.
