The International Wines and Spirits Competition (IWSC) is without a doubt the leading authority on the best spirits, particularly in the whiskey industry. Each year, the competition’s professional judges choose the world’s top whiskies from among the Gold Medalists Whisky in the categories of single malts, scotch whiskies, bourbons, and others to name the Trophy Winners.

Before receiving the coveted designation of a Trophy Winner, the chosen whiskies are further evaluated by a jury composed of the IWSC’s most knowledgeable jurors. Five whisky labels, including a well-liked 40 YO spirit that you may customize, are among the greatest trophy winners of this year.
Check out the winners below.

5 of the world’s most expensive whiskies are:-

1. The Emerald Isle Collection

Two bottles of Bushmills, the world’s oldest distillery, and The Craft Irish Whiskey Co.’s oldest triple-distilled Irish whiskey are included in this limited-edition whisky gift set, which retails for the US $2 million (Rs14,80,86,700). A custom Fabergé Celtic Egg made of emerald and 18-karat gold, a 22-karat watch, and a Cohiba Siglo VI Gran Reserva cigar with a gold-plated cutter are all included in the luxury box along with the whisky. The Emerald Isle Collection was the most expensive debut release for a whisky firm ever because of the proceeds from its sales, which were donated to a cause supporting children’s cancer research.

2. The Macallan 1926 Fine and Rare 60-Year-Old

This bottle of scotch broke the record for the most expensive wine or spirit ever sold at auction in October 2019. You might want to grab onto your chair for this one, but the cost was the US $1.9 million (Rs 14.06,86,640). This 1926 single malt was dubbed the “holy grail” of whisky by Sotheby’s. The cask number 263, which is regarded as something of a legend, is where the vintage malt was taken. Only 40 bottles were made from that cask, and an auction for older liquor that matured in it brought in $1.2 million (Rs 8,88,83,280). One bottle was even hand-painted by Irish artist Michael Dillon as part of a limited edition of 24 by pop artists Peter Blake and Valerio Adami.

3. The Balvenie Fifty: Marriage 0614

Is that had been under development for fifty years was finally produced by The Balvenie, a single malt scotch whisky distillery in Scotland. The whisky, which costs between US $40,000 and the US $50,000 (Rs 29,62,040-Rs 37,02,550), is made up of malts from at least seven 50-year-old American and European casks. Due to the marriage of many casks, which impart varied flavors and liquid intensities to the drink, the whiskey is appropriately named Marriage.

The whisky, which was created by malt master David C. Stewart (MBE), is rich in bitter chocolate flavor, powerful spice, and a sweetness reminiscent of maple syrup with traces of honey. Each bottle of whiskey is housed in a handcrafted hardwood canister built from elm trees on the Balvenie Distillery grounds, and the decanters for the liquor have been hand-blown from lead-free crystal.

4. The Dalmore-1964 Constellation Collection

This has matured for 46 years and is the oldest of The Dalmore’s Constellation Collection, a line of fine vintage liquors produced between 1964 and 1992. Richard Patterson, the master distiller at Dalmore, gave the whisky notes of orchard fruit and cinnamon spice in homage to his love of sherry. The cost of the whisky is the US $6000 (Rs 44,42,700).

5. Glenfiddich 1937 Rare Collection

Before World War II, this whisky was produced at the Glenfiddich Distillery in Speyside, Scotland, and was finished 64 years later, in 2001. Only 61 bottles’ worth of liquid was left in the cask at this point, making it a very uncommon whisky. The costs a staggering $120,000 USD (Rs88,82,460). The most expensive single malt ever sold at a Scottish auction house was a single malt that was sold in 2016 at the Bonhams Whisky Sale in Edinburgh.
