I love an occasional whiskey now and then, but not $60,000 worth!!
As part of the CNBC show "Secret Lives of the Rich and Famous", journalist Robert Frank joined O'Leary on a trip to the TY Bar at the Four Seasons hotel in New York.
The bar is home to a case of 5 bottles of aged Balvenie whiskey worth over $60,000! (The leather case alone is worth $4,000!). Turns out you can't even buy the bottles anymore, the only place you can commercially drink these bottles is at the TY bar.
O'Leary and Frank tried sips from Balvenie whiskey bottled in 2004, 1993, 1981, 1973, and 1961.
1.5 ounces of whiskey from the 1961 bottle goes for $5,000 alone. Robert Frank and Mr. Wonderful went nuts for the whiskey, and couldn't even come up with real words to describe it.
And I thought I was treating myself when I splurged for a little Gentleman Jack.
