A true gentleman always has the most unique and special whiskey collections. For those looking for the best whiskey‘s to serve special guests or to celebrate some special occasion, today we’re presenting you 5 luxury and expensive whiskey‘s to add to your whiskey collection.
Let’s get this out of the way: Isabella’s Islay’s value is all tied up in its decanter, which contains 8,500 diamonds, 300 rubies, and exquisite white gold. Put water in the bottle, and it will still be worth over $6 million.
As far as the whiskey goes, it’s one of the finest that money can buy, decanter aside. Isabella’s Islay is the epitome of luxury Scotch whiskey, and even without a diamond and jewel encrusted bottle, it costs a ton of money on its own.
The Macallan M
The Macallan M is one of the kings of old and expensive whiskeys. It last sold at an auction in Hong Kong for $628,205. Yes, the whiskey itself is a rarity and highly valuable. The vintages used range from about 25 to over 75 years old, and each was aged in Spanish oak. However, the decanter that houses The Macallan M is made of handcrafted crystal and was designed and created by a group of 17 expert crafters. It’s a 6-liter bottle that is not at all easy to find, and as the years go on it will only increase in value.

The Macallan 64
This bottle of Macallan whiskey ushers in the bottles that are largely valued due to their decanters. Perfect for an antique collection, the Macallan 64 in Lalique Cire Perdue was last seen at auction in 2010 when it fetched $464,000. The drink itself is comprised of three different whiskeys aged in Spanish oak barrels from 1942, 1945, and 1946. The crystal decanter is unique, unable to be found anywhere else, and was designed and fashioned by iconic French glassmaker Lalique.
Another super rare Dalmore whiskey is the Dalmore 62. Like the Dalmore 64 Trinitas, it has whiskeys that are more than a century old, dating back to the mid-19th century. The wooden mold used to create its decanter took over 100 hours to handcraft, and the platinum and crystal decanter that holds Dalmore 62 is part of why it costs a quarter million dollars.
Dalmore 64 Trinitas
Dalmore 64 Trinitas is a blend of some of the distillery’s most special and rare vintages. It contains whiskeys from 1939, 1926, 1878, and 1868. As one would guess, not much is left of whiskey dating back over a century, which is why just three bottles of Dalmore 64 Trinitas were made. Just one is available for direct sale, and there’s no telling what happened to the other two. Perhaps, they were favored by their owners. It’s more likely, however, that those bottles of Dalmore 64 Trinitas will eventually show up at auction for much more than their purchase price.
