£22k.. hmmm..

What can £22k buy you? Maybe 44000 bars of chocolate like Snickers for example. Or maybe 22 sets of haute couture? Or perhaps a spanking top of the range Vertu mobile phone and a leet Grand Canyon computer system (forget Alienware, it pales in comparison to that). Or maybe a small 75cl bottle I came across in Heathrow, as seen below.


The words have gone really blur when I resized it, here it is:
Of the forty originally produced, only twelve now remain and we are priviledged to be able to offer one of them here for £22 000.

Filled to the cask in 1926 at the Macallan distillery in Speyside , the 26th bottle was released for sale in Glasgow this March reaching the record price of £20,150.

Please speak to a member of our staff for more information.



Personally, I'd rather use the cash to get a Skyline (yes, £22k is sufficient to get an R-33, a couple more grand and you can get the R-34) Or as a deposit towards my first house. Not on a bottle of aged alcohol older than my grandparents. But heck, alcohol connoisseurs might beg to differ. But are they even that mad (unless they really have the cash to spare)??
