I'm hoping the South Sarasota Total Wine still has the Mac 25 on Tuesday since I have to drive there to drop off a computer. If so, I'm buying it. $2,200 + tax. When I bought my current bottle, it was $1,700+ tax. It's that good.

They don't call it the Rolls Royce of Scotch for nothing.

I like the fact that I'm a beer drinker, ... Heineken in particular, and I've never been a hard alcohol drinker. I pay my local Speedway gas station a king's ransom for cases of the 24 oz. cans of Heineken. The manager orders 12 cases every few weeks just for me. I know it's a shit ton more expensive than just buying the regular sized cans at the grocery store, but I don't care.

With scotch, I also don't care. Scott introduced me to QUALITY scotch, and since then I've been hooked. I have the ability to buy some amazing scotch, and I will continue to do so.

Cognac was the only expensive stuff I ever tried. It was nice and not even near the scale of the stuff in this thread.

Highland Park makes some really good batches. I had a few bottles of their Dark Origins before they sold out. Outstanding flavor, smooth with the right amount of peat, not too "mediciney" and not reasonably priced.

What kind of cigar?

A good cognac is really nice! Bottle cost has nothing to do with anything except hype, aside from collectibles and rare batches.

You can get $50/bottle Balvenie DoubleWood that is smooth, full of flavor, and will best stuff costing twice as much or more.

For those that don't know, that was my bottle that I purchased at Costco yesterday. I was holding the box it was in under a pizza and as I walked out the door it slid out of the box and shattered on the ground right at the front door area of Costco.

Fortunately they felt sorry for me and gave me a new bottle.
