Johnnie Walker Releases $27,000 Scotch
Yes, you read that right...$27,000. We're not exactly cheapskates, but we can't imagine buying a bottle of whisky that costs more than our car. The scotch, which was put together to commemorate the "200th birthday" of founder Johnnie Walker, is a blend of nine rare types of whisky.
Only 200 bottles of the Johnnie Walker Blue Label 1805 Anniversary Pack have been produced as a tribute to the founder, John Walker. The blend is made from whiskies at least 45 years old and come predominantly from distilleries that no longer exist.
Another interesting point is that this scotch isn't really meant to be drunk - it's meant to be bought by collectors and kept in a safe. We ask you...where's the fun in that? For more information about the 1805 blend, read the article at Drinks Business Review
