PORTLAND, Ore. -

A Portland, Oregon man is now the proud owner of a $27,000 bottle of rare scotch.

Retired businessman Lyle Shellenberg recently purchased the rare bottle of Glenfiddich scotch whiskey. He is now just one of only six people in the United States to purchase one of the 50 bottles released worldwide each year.

The hand crafted bottle came in a locked leather case.

Makers of the scotch say it spent half a century aging to perfection.

Shellenberg tells FOX News he plans to drink it at a special event sometime with his family.
