    Macallan has announced their newest release in the Lalique decanter line. This time it’s 64 years old, just one bottle, and it will be auctioned off for charity. (Press release below.)

    Wow. That's amazing! I'm guessing it'll end up in the collection of a wealthy Japanese businessman but I'd be afraid to ship the damned thing.

    I think shipping would involve a motorcade and hand delivery.
