Really great value for money! This is a sherry bomb in the truest sense. It's rich, thick, and bitter sweet. Nose greets you with honey and dried fruits, followed by more of the same on the palette, and a long lingering minty finish. Considering it's about $80, great value for a 21 year old. Try getting a 21 yr old other sherry finish (yes, you Macallan) for that price and just as good. Not to get into economic here...but, if a 21 year old sherry cask from Glenfarclas is about $80, and assuming a 8% return on their investment, it then makes you wonder the profit margin on a similar Macallan! By the way...with Brexit, wondering if these Scottish treats will become a bit cheaper? Pound should nosedive with a stronger dollar. Maybe not...retailers here will simply take the difference for themselves.

    Pranay: let me know outside the forums how to reach you. I would be interested in sampling all. If you see anything in my collection you want to try let me know. I can send some your way as well.

    Scott: I have an empty 6cl vial, and three open bottles. A Mezan Panama rum, Bruichladdich Laddie 8, and an Ilegal Mezcal Resposado. Let me know if you want to try any of those---will gladly send over a sample.

    Pranay: if you ever come across this again, I would love to take you up on an offer to sample. If there is anything I have, too, I would gladly send some your way.

    Adaminak: at $118...I'm not sure. At $80, was definately worth it. If I had any left, I'd send you a sample---you'd then be able to decide. Next time, let me know---I'd be happy to send over a sample.

    I've seen in here in Alaska at $118 a bottle. Given the strength of your and Davie's review though, I'm going to grab it next time I'm in the store.

    Scott: it was shop rite wines in chester, nj . without tax though...add the tax, and it's more.

    Whereabouts in the US have you seen for $80? At that price, I gotta go get me one!! I haven't seen it that cheap near me.
