I didn't even know Macallan made a 17. I've had the 12 and the 18.


Just one more sip.

Please know, I'm no expert.

I liked the flavor of the 17 and the smoothness of the 25.

Never heard of that one, sounds great. It's Rum finish, i guess, rather than aged in coconuts?

Eagle Rare 10 and 17 year. The 17 has always been one of my favorites and I always try to pick up a bottle from Binny's each year when it is released.

Dalmore 12 - tasty and a cool bottle.
Glenmorangie 12 Quinta Ruban if you likd a little sweetness. This one is aged in port barrels.

Recently tried Ardbeg 10, which should be in this price range. I've intro'd it to a few friends and everyone has come back with rave reviews.

I like the Strathisla 12. It is not a peaty style at all. Lots of honey and some spice. Perfect for the holidays, says I. $40-ish in Chicago.

Sounds awesome. What's St. Germaine Tonic? Do you combine the two or is it an off-the-shelf product?

St Germain is a elderflower liquor by itself that retails under 40usd. For the lack of better description, it has a honey-lychee flavor that puts Soho to shame, but more sweet, more floral, and more complex. It is well known for versatility with cognac, rum, Hendrick's gin etc etc.., but I usually drink it just on the rocks.
