You should hone in what type of whisky you prefer first ie peaty, smokey, fruity before really breaking the bank. Even then, you might not be able to blind taste the difference if I were to put those Macallans next to some other $100-$500 bottles. The ones pictured are *probably pretty good but not worth that kind of money.

That is true for sure, but coincidentally, one of the best whiskeys I've ever had was in fact one of the oldest....

Which one was your oldest?

My oldest was a '71

My favorite so far was a glenlivet 1982 by Berry Bros. have a backup bottle saved for that next great moment in my life. Have a feeling another bottle that I havent opened will be awesome and thats a highland park '71

Not nearly as old as the pictured Macallan. wink.gif

I've been meaning to get into the older Glenfarclas range... they are a very reasonable price for the quality.  Mostly along the lines of what I enjoy as well.

Those Macallans are collector items, so priced accordingly. I havent had anything in the 30-40yr age range as most of what I like tends to get outrageous in those ranges, beyond what I'm willing to buy and open. My local has been parading around a 37 year Lagavulin that I've been tempted by but it's excessive and I can buy a shelf or two full of fantastic whisky's for the same 3k.

So, I guess my point is that I would have to be very bored with what I currently have to venture that far.

I took a quick trip this past weekend to Osaka to visit a new tailor so I decided to stop by Yamazaki's distillery.

^ Oh damn that is awesome. Osaka is fantastic… I would love to visit that distillery.
