Our group of travelling track junkies regularly wrap up meals with a wee dram of the Mac. The fun part is applying what we call "The Macallan Rule" which is that a shot shouldn't cost more than a dollar per year. Obviously, with inflation that gets tougher every year, and while the 12 hangs in there pretty close, more often than not they're now asking for about $25 for the 18. The key comes in looking at the relative price between the two and figuring which is closest to rule.
I wonder what the rule is for Scotch from the 19th Century.http://news.yahoo.com/explorers-rare-sc ... nance.html
Alas, it will probably never be sold, at any price.
