The 10 Most Expensive Whiskeys in the World 6-10

6: Dalmore 50 Year Old Decanter:$11,000

Only 60 crystal-cut bottles of this Highland single malt were produced. Filled in 1978, this dark sherry-aged Dalmore has a reputation for being intense and deeply flavored and is considered by many aficionados among the best 50 year olds in the world.

7: Macallan 55 Year old Lalique Crystal Decanter $12,500

The eye-catching crystal bottle of Macallan’s 55 year old Lalique was based on a 1910 perfume bottle designed by Rene Lalique . Exotic, with hints of peat smoke, the taste is smooth with lingering citrus overtones.

8: Glenfiddich 1937 Rare Collection $20,000

Rare doesn’t describe it. Only one bottle of Glenfiddich’s 1937 Rare Collection was ever produced, and it just might be the oldest bottle of whisky in the world. It was snatched up at a 2006 auction for a bargain $20,000.

9: Dalmore 62 Single Highland Malt Scotch $58,000

Only a dozen bottles of Dalmore 62 single malt were corked in 1942. One night in 2005, a man bought a bottle for $58,000, and downed it with five of his buddies.

10: The Macallan 1926 Fine and Rare $75,000
