$15,000 Time Machine

Glenfiddich 50 - By Hammerstone's Whiskey Disks, makers of the world's best whiskey stones.

The Glenfiddich 50 Year Old.

This is what a $15,000 bottle of whisky looks like – The Glenfiddich 50 Year Old. Only 500 individually numbered, hand-blown glass bottles are available, each adorned with Scottish silver and packaged in leather-bound cases. Fifty bottles are being released each year, for a period of 10 years.

Unveiled by Peter Grant Gordon at The Glenfiddich Distillery in July 2009, Glenfiddich 50 Year Old is not just a part of the distillery’s history; it is their history. The first vatting was created from just nine casks, laid down between 1937 and 1939, one for each of the founder, Willliam Grant’s children, who helped their father build The Glenfiddich Distillery by hand in 1886.

The Glenfiddich 50 Year Old is a mind-blowing, liquid time capsule. So if you’re one of the few lucky enough to call a bottle their own, sit back and enjoy the ride. You’ve just bought a $15,000 time machine and we think that Sir, is a bargain.

    I have, for a number of years, maintained a series of lists. I have a “Birthday list”, a “Christmas list”, a “I won the Lottery list”. These lists were placed where my beloved wife would be sure to come across them.

    A Hallmark of my lists was that everything on the list was possible although highly improbable. I now have to come up with a totally new list category. The frontrunner at present is the “My beloved wife laughed manically” list.

    This is a special list for those few items that my wife simply wouldn’t understand my desire for. This would be the married man’s bucket list. Of course if I were so blessed as to acquire a bottle I’d need a new list. This would be the “Who I love enough to share a wee dram with” list.

    Yes as men, we can be a difficult breed to comprehend. I think the women who truly “get” men, are the women who simply accept that it is our nature to want to acquire objects that they don’t.
