How much for dat?

So…I stopped into my liquor store to lay in a few supplies for a party we are attending tonight.

On checkout, I noticed a bottle of 25 year-old Macallan scotch on the shelf over his shoulder.

I commented that the mere sight of it made my mouth water, and that $149.00 seemed a very good price.

“Ha!” He exclaimed. “That’s for the 18”

He flipped the tag over on the neck: “The 25 is $599.00!”

Uh…OK.

  1. Tom, I bought Eric a bottle of 14 year old single malt Clynelish for his birthday. Highly recommended by the shop owner, $40. We’ll see how Eric likes the taste of it.
