Macallan’s Amber liqueur is so good that it’s worth sharing–even though it’s hard to find since they stopped making it. It’s a single-malt scotch liqueur with maple and pecan flavors. NOTCOT gave us some to try, and if you’re curious there are sources online for procuring a bottle. It smells like scotch and maple syrup! Have I built up enough of a demand and air of mystery?

It goes for about $25–$30 a bottle.

A pleasantly smoky nose is followed by a nice peated start on the front … Read more

The Glenrothes Vintage 1998 Review

post icon

I recently received a bottle of the Glenrothes Vintage 1998 Scotch Whisky. Sure my friend works for Skyy, but it was unexpected just the same.
