Scottish Highlands rarest whisky offering ever at $3,600 a bottle

Esteemed Scottish Highlands distillery Glenmorangie will soon release its rarest expression yet —  the Pride 1981. The most expensive single malt ever created by Glenmorangie, only 1,000 bottles will be tapped at a price of $3,600 a bottle (€2750.). Glenmorangie Master Distiller Dr. Bill Lumsden matured the whisky in the finest oak casks for 18 years, when he was able to procure a small number of Sauternes barriques aging casks previously used with Château d’Yquem wine. The limited edition spirit was then aged for an additional 10 years in the Sauternes casks. The resulting 28-year-old single malt has been dubbed Pride 1981, and was lauded by Cigar Afficiando as “one of the great single malts of our age.” Of course you can expect the bottle will be a work of art itself, as the beautiful Baccarat crystal decanter was designed by artist Laurence Brabant. Each bottle will be individually numbered and personally signed by Master Distiller Lumsden. Filling out the packaging is a exquisitely crafted wooden case containing an eye-dropper full of Glenmorangie’s Tarlogie spring water — just in case you want to open up the luxurious scotch in gentle increments.
