The three liquor bottles seen below are the COOLEST liquor bottles ever made, says I.

Ironically, the libations inside 'em are among the worst spirits ever made for human consumption!
The skull bottle on the left once held Crystal Head Vodka, whose taste has been compared to nail polish remover. (Still, it would worth buying just for the bottle.)
Next to the vodka bottle are the two bottles that fit together to hold Jekyll and Hyde liquors, marketed by Anheuser-Busch's subsidiary, Long Tail Libations. As this site describes the two-in-one drink, "Both bottles hold 750 mL, with one clear glass bottle showing the deep-red, 60-proof raspberry-flavored Jekyll, the other revealing the black, 80-proof Hyde, a black molasses-tasting product. When a bartender pours each into a shot glass, Hyde floats on top of Jekyll due to differing product viscosities and the amount of sugar in each." Another site, Liquor Snob, says the Hyde part is "herbal tasting;" the site The Bachelor Guy site similarly describes Hyde as "spicy."
But MOLASSES-tasting? Ooorg!
Both liquors are pretty sweet. Feh. Manischewitz is cheaper.
The Jekyll and Hyde liquors seem to have evolved from fruit-flavored malt liquor shots designed to be added to beer! (Blehhh.) This was test-marketed by Anheuser-Busch in 2006; the following year the harder Jekyll and Hyde liquors came out.
Below is the original art that was designed for the malt liquor; the painting by illustrator Jerome Lagarrigue was adapted for the label of the 2007 Jekyll and Hyde form-fitting bottles:
