Good is such a relative distinction. Wine that is ‘good’ to me means it doesn’t taste like vinegar, has a cute label, and is under $20. Good can mean a whole lot of things to a whole lot of people, and to someone at Sotheby’s Hong Kong, that meant dropping $628,205 on a 6-litre crystal decander of The Macallan single malt.
So this brings up a lot of questions, including:
1. What occasion would ever be huge enough to actually drink The Macallan?
2. Where do you store a 6-litre crystal decanter?
3. Do you think this is the same guy that paid $460,000 for 64 year old The Macallan in 2010?
4. How good could a $628k bottle of anything be?
