Toronto police are looking for an alleged thief with a taste for the finer, and more expensive, things in life.

According to police, a man went into a downtown Toronto LCBO store earlier this month and pulled a rare 50-year-old Glenfiddich Single Malt scotch out of a glass case in the vintage section.

The 700-millilitre bottle worth $26,000 is extremely rare, with only 15 bottles available in Ontario, and 50 worldwide.

Police said the man also selected a bottle of wine, which he took to the counter and paid for, but left the store without settling up for the scotch.

A still image captured by a security camera shows the suspect leaving the store, wine bottle gripped in his left hand, with a trench coat oddly draped across the right side of his body.

Police describe the man as white, 35 to 45 years old, 5'10", clean-shaven with black-framed glasses. He was last seen leaving the store wearing a Burberry plaid shirt, brown hat, brown trench coat, and black jeans.
