A Whisky or a Ferrari?

You may have the means to buy one of them, but would perhaps hesitate to buy yourself the other. Yet, there are spirits that sell for as much, sometimes even much more, than the most prized sports cars… Is that really reasonable? A very enlightened whiskey lover will speak to you of barrel no 263 in almost mystical tones. When we point out that every bottle drawn from this barrel sells for almost two million dollars, you may well feel entitled to wonder whether some magical mystery might be steeping in the depths of the famous cask.

Next, you may find yourself thinking that two million dollars transformed sooner or later into uric acid will probably never raise the current or future value of your own urine.
