Though President Obama isn’t one of those politicians like Boris Yeltsin who are known to ‘enjoy’ having a ‘few’ sips of alcohol, the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel in Mumbai, where the U.S. Commander-In-Chief is going to stay has prepared a special liquor cabinet. Considering he is the most powerful man on earth, only the best has been stored.
He can now drown the sadness of the Republican takeover of the House of Representatives by taking sips from the following very exorbitantly priced drinks: Glenfiddich 40-Year Old Rare Collection Single-Malt Scotch, which is part of a very limited release of just 600 bottles, and is priced between $2,000-$2,500 per bottle. Then there is the Balvenie Rare 30-year whiskey. It is a combination of whiskey aged in traditional second-fill American oak and whisky aged in European oak casks. Price? $425.00 to $500. The third one is a 1998 Dom Perignon Rose Champagne all the way from France. It is one of the best Dom Perignons out there and comes for $300-$350 per bottle.
Fourth is the Chateau Petrus wine, which is made almost entirely from Merlot, and occasionally Cabernet Franc. Priced at $3400 per bottle. A royal touch comes from Louis XIII Black Pearl Cognac. Blended from 1200 eaux-de-vie, some more than a hundred years old, which is then aged in tiercons, oak barrels that are also many centuries old. Priced at a whopping $1,800-$2,500.
