Ik vind die Old Pulteneys altijd maar van die 'slappe' whiskies. Geen body!!

Macallan 10 years old Fine Oak, 40% abv

Used to be the little brother of the Macallan lineup. Didn’t pay too much attention to it. But ‘supply-and-demand’ is making this a $200 bottle. My goodness.

Personally, I've never been a big fan of Macallan whisky. I thinks it's very overpriced for what is tastes like. They have a very very good marketing team though.

EDIT: sorry, I just read that you paid 200 $ for this bottle ? ? :o :o :o Holy shit ! Around here you'd pay between 75 - 80 Euro and even that is too much IMHO.

Actually I didn't. I paid $30 usd about 5 years ago. I wanted to get a case that day, thinking it's six bottles. But the clerk told me it was a 12 bottle case. I didn't want to have so many of the 'not so very good' whisky, so I took 3 bottles instead. Got out of the store under $100 including tax.

The link I've attached is something I just saw online recently. Had I known it would get that expensive, I would have taken the case; maybe two. But you are right about one thing. Macallan prices had gone up across the board, with some bottles approaching absurd prices. I haven't try the new 18 year sherry cask, but some said that it tasted different than before.

Well, if you really wanted to cash in on Macallan whisky you should have bought the sherry oak editions and not this new range of fine oak editions. The prices of these sherry oak bottles are just ridiculous. And 15 to 20 years ago you could get these bottles in our local supermarket for almost less than nothing.

That’s very true. I remembered buying the Yamasaki 12 year old for $45.99, and Kirkland Macallan 18 years old bottle from Costco at $79.99. Those were the good days before the whiskey craze gone totally wild. Maybe now is the time to load up on cognacs, as it should be time for this brown spirit to take a turn.
