A rare bottle of Scotch whisky is being poured for $2,500 a dram at New York City’s Bull & Bear, according to press materials.
Located in the iconic Waldorf Astoria, the Manhattan-based fine dining restaurant, known for its high-class mahogany bar, is the only venue on the East Coast serving The Balvenie Fifty, Cask 4570.
Poured as a dram (equivalent to an eighth of a fluid ounce, or approximately 3.7 milliliters) or in a full flight, the drink will be available until Feb. 28, on which date the Waldorf Astoria will close for renovations.
Matured in a European oak hogshead, the 50-year-old Scotch whisky is one of two casks that were filled on May 28, 1963, and released in 2014. Cask 4570, which produced 128 bottles, is noted as having hints of toffee, honey, and oak, as well as a sweetness from vanilla and honey, flavors that are characteristic of The Balvenie.
