    Lets just keep that our little secret.Gotta love my wife.....she didn't have a clue what she was buying but she did damn good.A Peterson B11 Volcano,an Amadeus bent billiard,pipe stand,Brigadier Black sampler(8 oz sampler's who woulda thunk),Davidoff flake medallions(looks delish),14 oz of Angler's Dream,a new pouch,Family portaits and that lovely bottle of nectar from the Gods....18 yo Sherry Oak.The best Scotch on the planet IMHO.

    I bet it is.....but the 25 commands more than my wife or I are willing to part with.The 18 is a 2-3 times a year splurge.My every day Scotch is Macallan 12 Sherry Oak and Balvenie Doublewood.I must say in the 12 yo selections the Balvenie really excels and is my favorite.

    Yeah, I'd drink the Macallan 25 or 30 year old all the time if I could.

    Online.....I live out in the middle of ranch country in Northwest Texas.My closest local is 75 miles away in Abilene,we agree on cigar selection but his pipe baccy leaves alot to be desired.I haven't even given his pipes a second look.....guess I need to next time I'm in.

    Thanks for all the great comments guys.

    Have you tried the Glenfarclas 15.....Real sleeper IMHO.Very lightly peated,heavy on the sherry which brings out the pears,apple,peaches,walnut....so on and so forth.I've had 18's that weren't anywhere near as smooth nor as complex.Priced very reasonably as well........I think I gave about $70 for my last bottle.Worth every penny and then some IMHO.A poor mans 25 if ya will.

    Haven't yet. I'm a Highland Park man as my everyday malt. Nothing like Macallan but excellent in its own way.

    Man that is a beautiful haul, she really spoiled you on that one! You got all the ingredients for a nice afternoon there. The pipe, the baccy, and the drinks. Myself I got a bottle of Crown Royal Reserve and a note showing that my new Mario Grandi Olive Wood Billiard is on its way to me!

    Yes, I meant the 25, I was thinking about that 50 year old bottle of Mac that was sold for 18 k plus...I was drooling. The 18 is a once in a while for me too, been nursing the same bottle for 6 months now...

    Everyone I've turned onto it have been pleasantly surprised.I do not think you'll be the exception......unless your a peat in the face kind of guy.This one is peat lite......just the way I like em.
