For his 1st birthday in 1992, Pete, the dad of Matthew, a 28-year-old inhabitant of Taunton, England, gave his son a bottle of Macallan 18-year-old single malt.
Every year for as long as he could remember, Dad gave his son a bottle of whiskey, but he was not allowed to open it.
It used to be a birthday present that I would receive every year. It seemed a little strange to me, but I did as I was told and didn’t open them at all. I did it, explains Matthew.
Over the years, he has gathered 28 of these bottles and spent roughly $5,000. His dad established it as a yearly custom (500,000 rubles).
Now, the estimated value of this property is 40.000 pounds (almost 4 million rubles).
Here, according to a broker who deals in rare whiskies, we are discussing the ideal collection.
No one has seen a stockpile like this in a loong period, he claims, adding that the cost of Macallan whisky has increased significantly over the past ten years.
Without even trying the whiskey, Matt made the decision to sell this collection so he could purchase his first house.
