Expensive Whiskeys for those with deep pockets

1. Dalmore 62 Single Highland Malt Scotch (Matheson 1942) – $58,000

Alexander Matheson built what would become the legendary Dalmore Distillery back in 1839. In 1942, this particular Scotch whiskey was released by Dalmore to honor Matheson. Just 12 bottles were made, which is part of what makes the Matheson 1942 Dalmore Scotch so expensive. Inside is an exquisite whiskey that’s bold and unlike any other. You’ll have to find this one at a private collector’s auction, and if you do expect to pay $58,000 or more.

2. Glenfiddich 1937 – $71,700

Glenfiddich 1937

Glenfiddich 1937 is a very rare single malt Scotch whiskey with interesting, rich notes of molasses, chocolate, cedar, burnt heather, and oak. Its composition is exquisite, and this particular vintage was drawn from a cask that was made in 1937, hence the name. That same cask has been cared for by generations since, and the Glenfiddich 1937 still stands as an example of one of the best whiskeys in the world. In the nearly 80 years since the Glenfiddich 1937 was made. Only about 60 bottles remain and all can only be found at auction.

The handful of people who own Glenfiddich 1937 typically don’t dare to drink it. However, those who have thrown caution to the wind and indulged have described the bronze colored whiskey as being quite remarkable. The highest price that Glenfiddich 1937 has fetched at auction is $71,000, which occurred in 2012.

3. The Macallan 1926 (Fine & Rare) – $75,000

Macallan’s Fine & Rare collection of whiskey highlights its oldest and best vintages. Think of it as the distillery’s history in a glass. The oldest of the Fine & Rare collection is The Macallan 1926, and it’s the earliest release from the distillery. A small number of bottles are released each year, which has pushed this particular vintage’s value up to $75,000.

How I teach kids to love science

At the Harbour School in Hong Kong, TED Senior Fellow Cesar Harada teaches citizen science and invention to the next generation of environmentalists. He’s moved his classroom into an industrial mega-space where imaginative kids work with wood, metal, chemistry, biology, optics and, occasionally, power tools to create solutions to the threats facing the world’s oceans. There, he instills a universal lesson that his own parents taught him at a young age: “You can make a mess, but you have to clean up after yourself.”
