The Most Expensive Whiskeys in the World

Forbes magazine has a slideshow of the 15 most expensive whiskeys in the world. Coming in at #3 is a batch of 50 year old Chivas Royal Salute, which costs about $10,000 a bottle.

Released in 2003 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II's coronation, its lead malt is the superb Strathisla, which accounts for the exceptionally rich and creamy character. Only 255 bottles of the Scottish whisky were released worldwide, which helps account for the high price.

McTavish, you are correct. The "e" in whiskey denotes all whiskeys made in any other country than Scotland. If you want true, honest to goodness, real whisky from Scotland then you can tell by the label. "Whisky".
In Scotland there are entire islands that are devoted to making whisky. You can even go on the "Whisky Trail" (which is on the eastern mainland) and stop at many roadside whisky distilleries for a tour and samples of their products. My grandparents hailed from Scotland and Islay, an island west of the mainland, has whisky distilleries as their main source of income. Small island and about 9 distilleries. Good stuff!
