Editor’s Note: We’ve just launched sign ups for our upcoming The Whiskey Wash newsletterClick here to join our list and stay informed!

This list is updated as of February 1, 2016.

We’ve covered a lot of expensive whiskey here at The Whiskey Wash since the blog debuted, including a post last year about the over $1.5 million Dalmore Scotch collection that includes a bottle of whisky dating back to 1926. You ever wonder though what the most expensive whiskies on the market currently cost on average per bottle when you line up one against another?

The fine folks over at wine-searcher.com maintain one such list of some of the most expensive whiskies currently for sale in the world. This list, updated regularly, is based upon information from the huge network of over 58,500 online retailers they tie into globally, and it is now presented here for your consideration, courtesy of their hard working staff.

Not surprisingly, as you can see from the list below, it is dominated by older, very, very limited edition Scotch expressions from the likes of The Balvenie, The Macallan, The Dalmore, Glenfiddich and Glenlivet. The very top dog is The Balvenie 50 Year Old, pricing on average over $37,000, with a max price of $50,000. This particular whisky, which we first touched on a few years back, is truly a bottling for the 1 percent (well, maybe the 5 percent).

The list is based on the average price of a standard bottle (750ml). Information is drawn from the Wine-Searcher database of 58,559 wine and spirits stores all around the world.
