The Glenrothes is well-known for its cask bottlings, and it recently released a special single malt Scotch that was distilled in July of 1970 and aged in American oak for more than 40 years. There’s only one available for each state in the US.
Knappogue Castle’s 1951 vintage is one of the world’s most sought-after Irish spirits. And its 12 Year Old, which is triple-distilled and aged in oak, is also quite a fine dram. It has all of Irish whiskey’s typical mellow character, accented by elegant fruit and mild spice.
There’s Champagne and then there’s the three-liter, 14-karat-gold-leaf-covered Moët & Chandon Golden Jeroboam. Just 35 are available, all from New York retailer Sherry-Lehmann Wine & Spirits. Plus, every one comes with an indelible pen, which you can use to write a message right on the jumbo bottle.
While we think distilling is an art form, The Macallan has gone even further. The famed brand has teamed up with legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz for its latest limited edition. You can choose from four different whiskies, each accompanied by a print featuring Scottish actor Kevin McKidd.
