Macallan whisky distilled in 1926 sold at auction for $1.1 million

Good whisky is expensive, but what about whisky that costs a million dollars?

A bottle of Macallan whisky, distilled in 1926, just sold at auction for $1.1 million.

That means the whisky was aged through the Great Depression, World War II and the entire Cold War.

It was bottled in 1986 and sold in 1994 for $27,000.

Forbes says it's the most expensive whisky ever sold at auction.
