An Epic Scotch: Gordon & MacPhail Macallan 37 Yr. – 1970

Every once in a while a great Scotch will cross my path and I consider myself a lucky person to have had the opportunity to taste it, let alone own an entire bottle.  My father and I decided to put our money together and buy a bottle of the Gordon & MacPhail Macallan 1970 when it was on sale for $199.99 (currently on sale for $299.99) back in December with the idea of having a dram on special occasions.

It is incredible.  Earthy, a bit of smoke, some caramel, and some salt.  We opened it with a few drops of water.  The high alcohol content (53.3) leaves a nice warm feeling in your mouth and the texture is like silk.  Overall, I am completely happy with this purchase and I think it was worth every penny.
