You can't take it with you, so you might as well drink it down by the dram. Lyle Shellenberg made a special trip to Hillsdale Liquor in Portland, Oregon to make one extravagant purchase.
KPTV reports that Shellenberg purchased a 50-year-old bottle of Glenfiddich Scotch whisky at a price of $27,000, making him one of only 50 people in the world - and six in the United States - to own this special release.
The bottle arrived at the liquor store in a locked leather case, and Shellenberg plans to crack it eventually as a special event to share with his family. "But then there comes a time," he told KPTV, "The seal's going to be broken and opened because I just have to know what it tastes like."
If you had $27,000 to spend specifically on food or booze, how would you do it? Go nuts in the comments below.
