Glenlivet has always been kind to me. Just looked up this Glenfarclas 1974 and jeeze! With a $250 price tag, it might have to become a Christmas present to myself.
Yeah, we pooled six people together to buy it and split the bottle. I believe it was $50/person, or something like that. Totally worth it.
The Macallan 18 Sherry Oak or Fine Oak.
I'm drinking my "first" bottle of scotch. Glenlivet 12, it's surprisingly delicious. I don't know why I didn't drink scotch more before this...oh wait it was $38!
I haven't tried the 21 fine oak. I imagine it's sublime. Have you tried any of the special editions or cask strengths?
Oh man, I remember reading about that. What channel was that special on? I'd love to see it.
I highly recommend this guide: Michael Jackson's Complete Guide to Single Malt Scotch
