    When asked if the collection is for investment purposes, de la Fuente Saez said, No, it is for drinking. None of the bottles are for sale.

    God love 'um. Nice to see some whisk(e)y nuts collecting rare bottles to drink.

    Yeah I caught that too and chuckled with glee.

    I also liked the authors disclaimer on his tasting notes which I basically took as "don't email me with your nit picking".

    You haven't been around here long, have you? Although, granted, you don't "see" a lot of us around here these days.

    Re: Straight to the Vault: A very large Scotch collection

    When they talk about something like the 1946 Macallan, aged 52 years, I'm assuming that means it was put in the cask in 1946 and then bottled in 1998. Is that correct?

    That's really cool, even if it is Scotch, I would still love to walk through that. I think it is what we all dream of, a big cellar full of more whiskey than we can ever drink in our lifetime.

    That is correct, it was bottled in 1998. There are actually 3 different 1946 Macallans available the aforementioned 52 yo, a 50 yo and a 56 yo. I haven't had the 56 but the other two were pleasant but not exceptional.

    By chance, The Great Serge Valentin has just reviewd 3 older Macallan's at whiskyfun.com . The 1949 sounds amazing. This thread is making me thirsty and frustrated. I just can't afford to ever taste these beauties and it is depressing.

    ^ His recent reviews of 3 1970 Vintages has me worried about my wallet. They all sound good and that's my birth year. I suppose the sooner I pull the trigger on a 1970 vintage the more money I'll save?

    I did mention it to my wife that it would be an excellent present for any ocassion.
