Spent $27,000 on a 50-year-old bottle of this
According to KPTV in Portland, Oregon and picked up by CNN's Eatocracy blog, Lyle Shellenberg became one of 50 people in the world to own this particular special release of Glenfiddich. He could have a reserved a new Sony 4K Ultra HD TV announced at CES this week (those are reportedly starting at $20K), or planned a baller weekend in New Orleans for the Super Bowl, he chose to honor his Scottish heritage and love of Glenfiddich. Good for him!
