Drop the Coin
Last year we told you
about a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to acquire a world-class collection of
rare Scotch whiskies at a landmark Christie’s
sale. Now you can get the whole shebang in one bottle. It’s no ordinary fifth of
hooch however; called The Last Drop,
it carries a $2,000 pricetag and there’s an extremely limited supply.
70 different malt whiskies and 12 different grain whiskies, most from
distilleries no longer extant and all at least 48 years old (i.e. pre-1960), go into
this uber-blend bottled at cask strength. Of course with something like this
you may want to lock it away in the cellar for some extremely important
occasion, so the makers have thoughtfully included a miniature bottle gratis so you
can sample the goods without breaking into the principal. And if you can stop
there you’re a better man than I.
