A 55-year-old Macallan is the leading lot in an exciting array of whiskies set for auction at Bonhams' New York sale next week.
The 40.1% specimen comes in a 750ml Lalique decanter and is offered with a presentation case and book.
With a high end estimate of $22,000, this classic drop is expected to have investors licking their lips on April 14.
Other top end whiskies at the sale include a 50-year-old Glenfiddich, estimated at $20,000, and a 50-year-old Glenfarclas, bottled in 2005 and expected to achieve $8,000.
Macallan was first distilled in 1824.
