There is no limit when it comes to setting prices for the rarest whiskies in the world, which included the Macallan 1926 that was auctioned for US$54,000 in 2007, which at the time was the most expensive whisky in the world.

Then along came Dalmore who sold a 62 year old whisky for over £25,000, another one later at £32,000 and now they have done it again after releasing a single malt whisky for a cool £100,000.

Only three bottles of the 64 year old Dalmore Trinitas were ever produced, two of which have already been acquired by a gentleman based in the US and by a UK based entrepreneur.

The last remaining bottle of Trinitas will be sold at The Whisky Show in London this weekend and one lucky person attending the show on Saturday will even get to try it!
Readomg the entire press release with pictures on the frontpage won't cost you £100,000!

Press release says the Trinitas has whisky from 1868 which would mean it has over 140 year old whisky. Question is, how much whisky would be remaining in the barrel after 140 years in the Highlands climate? And would it taste like complete wood?

Also, what the hell is Indonesian patchouli?

“£100,000 and several hundred pounds are two very, very different ballparks. So few people could even dream of spending £100,000 for a bottle of something that is destined for consumption. How can you argue that it’s anywhere near ok? When such a large percentage of the world’s population can’t even afford clean water, or an education!”

Here is an interesting article of a conversation about the ludicrous price of this whisky: http://www.masterofmalt.com/Blog/post/T ... x#continue
