Aston Martin and Bowmore have just unleashed a collaborative bottle that will run you a cool $66,000 USD. It's called Black Bowmore DB5 1964 — which nods to the year the Aston Martin DB5 made its on-screen debut in Goldfinger and the year Bowmore first laid down whisky for maturation — and is limited to only 25 bottles globally. It's set to release later this year, where it will arrive in an eye-popping bottle merged with a genuine DB5 piston. 

As for tasting notes, the whisky is described as having “intense flavors of mango, passion fruit, and acacia honey interwoven with a powerful combination of coffee and tobacco smoke."

Is it really worth the price tag, though? Considering the first Black Bowmore release in 1993 now fetches around 180x the original price on the auction circuit, eager collectors will likely think so.
