I tried the 10 year old Macallan last weekend...never got a chance to try the 12.  Is there a really noticeable difference?

There is actually quite a difference, I tried them both over the weekend.  I'll never buy anything less than the 12 year old again.

LOL,

I agree..  I tried both and the 12 year was much smoother..  Also, the color was darker, so you can actually "see" the difference.  

Now I need to try the 15, 18, 21, then 25 year old.....     $$$$$$$$

(yeah right)..

And there's a noticable difference between the 12 and 15. The 15 is a little smoother, a little richer than the 12.

What a St. Patricks day! Good music playing, good food on the grill, temperature in the mid-70's and to top it all off, two glasses of the Macallan. trink38.gif  new_thumbsupsmileyanim.gif  How was your day?

My wasn't bad..     Worked until 7:30pm then went home and watched a lousy Basketball game.   I did get to drink some beers, but it wasn't green beer.   I kinda forgot all about St Pattys day anyway.

Let me check my wallet!
