ALSO, join our google group! It's p. quiet so no one gets spammed to death (but we have a pretty solid IRL book club). If you were in the older group, this one is new because we couldn't find anyone with admin privileges to add new people.
So there are some Scotches that age really really well and you can definitely taste why they cost an obscene amount per serving. Macallan is NOT one of those, IMO. The 12 year is a solid choice in terms of "pretty good Scotch that a lot of places are likely to have," but it really caps out there in terms of value for money. I've not had the 30, but I've had the 18 and the 25 and both are fine-not-great.
I guarantee you these guys bought the 30 year because they knew the name and it was old and expensive, which gives me a teeny bit of schadenfreude.
(I have opinions on Scotches.)
