60 yr old scotch, $20,000/bottle

If you're an aficionado of scotch, or a collector of rare things, you may want to be in Vancouver Sept 9.

On Sept 9, three bottles of ultra-rare, collectible, 60-year-old Glenfarclas Scotch whisky will be put up for sale at the Signature BC Liquor Store at 39th and Cambie in Vancouver.

The price tag, $19,888 each.

BC Liquor Stores is the first Canadian retailer in Canada to offer this premium single malt to its customers, according to Pacific Wine & Spirits. Only 360 bottles are available worldwide.

The 60-year-old Glenfarclas has an incredibly dark, rich mahogany colour.

The vibrant aromas of dried fruits, demerara sugar and spice come through on the nose combining with rich, oaky tannins in a lengthy finish that culminate in an exquisite, aged whisky.

The cut-crystal decanter bottles are presented in custom designed, hexagonal boxes featuring the traditional shape of the Glenfarclas bottle.

The three bottles will be made available for sale following a Scotch-tasting and release event with Glenfarclas family member George S. Grant.
