Whiskey, a spirit distilled from malted grain, is an umbrella term encompassing bourbon, rye and scotch among many others. Think

Imagine plunking down $72,632 for a 55-year-old bottle of Glenfiddich Scotch made to honor the oldest living Scot. It was auctioned in Edinburgh recently and broke a European record. The bottle was one of 15
