Many posh people are true whisky snobs and those "in the know" drinkers choose Macallan and only Macallan as their whisky of choice. I got the real privilege of attending a private Macallan tasting and food pairing and now I think I understand what all the hoopla is about. Not only did we taste endless 12, 15, 17 even Macallan 18, but we were reveled with whisky stories and whisky education by their brand ambassador. My favorite factoid of the evening, a bottle of 1926 vintage Macallan was sold at a Christies auction for $54,000 which is the highest selling liquor ever at auction! If you can find a way to snag an invitation to one of their events, definitely clear your calendar!
