Rare 55 year old bottle of scotch headed for auction

Canadian whiskey connoisseurs have reason to celebrate with the news that the Glenfiddich Janet Sheed Roberts Reserve 55 Year Old has arrived in the country. Even better, those with deep pockets will have an opportunity to take it home.

The renowned Scotch whisky has earned acclaim as one of the rarest and most expensive single malts in the world, with only 11 bottles ever being produced. Bidding will start at $50,000 when it hits auction on October 19th at Toronto's Trump International Hotel & Tower. Bidders can also participate in a live online auction. Sally Gordon, Janet Sheed Roberts' (1901 - 2012) great-niece will be on hand.

All proceeds from the sale will go to Wounded Warriors, a not-for-profit organization that assists wounded Canadian soldiers and their families.
