Paging Mr. Jimmy

Now you know what you can get me for my birthday this year ...

Superior Scotch is always an indulgence, a spirit to sip and savor -- if only due to the golden elixir's premium price.

Still, you could bathe in a bathtub full of 12-year-old Glenfiddich for what you'd pay for the latest limited-edition release from Scotland's Highland Park. The Scottish distillery has always produced impeccable spirits, such as its mouthwatering 18-year-old release, but you best corral your loose change if you want one of the approximately 1,550 bottles of 1968 that will be unveiled this spring.

That's because the complexly rich Highland Park 1968 -- made from a blend of 40-year-old whiskies -- clocks in at a cool $3,999, or about the cost of a nice used car.

Read the rest here.
