6 different Macallans? I don't recall seeing Bond ever drink Scotch, much less The Macallan.
IMO, it would've made more sense to put together a gift pack for The Vesper Martini
• 1 bottle Gin
• 1 bottle Vodka
• 1 bottle Lillet Blanc

It's an easy cocktail to make, 3 parts gin, 1 part vodka, 1/2 part Lillet, shake not stir, toss in the glass, add a lemon twist and slap a random woman on the ass

My favorite Scotch, but I don't know what that says about me.

At $1,007 a bottle I better have an orgasm after every sip.

It really ought to be Smirnoff.  Sometimes nothing but Russian vodka will do.

"Drink it? No, my dear man, I merely collect it. It's too valuable to drink."

The horror of such things is that the rich are happy to sequester these items, as well, knowing that they will only increase in value if they're not consumed.

The worst part of this bit of marketing malarkey is that this wasn't Bond's scotch of choice until "Skyfall" hit the big screen. This is what happens when you sell branding rights for fictitious characters. Before this, it was Talisker. And before Talisker, it was Haig & Haig. And before Haig & Haig, it was "whatever he could work down his gob." Everything from Canadian Club rye blends to Black and White, never mind just about whatever other whiskey or bourbon was available at the time Fleming wrote a Bond novel.
