    Wow! That is a great price (at least $8 more in my neck of the wood). Isn't batch 47 the one that is hotly debated? IIRC some folks very much do not like it and others say it is fine. I have at least one 47 but haven't opened it yet.

    Absolutely great price. It's $70-$80 where I live. I was considering putting away a bottle of batch 45, since I REALLY enjoyed that one. But then I found a bottle of batch 29 and went with that instead.

    Macallan CS was available in my neck of the woods up until a few months ago. Now it appears to have gone the way of the dodo.

    Re: Anybody seen Macallan Cask Strength on the shelf?

    I have a batch 40 open now which I also paid $50 for. Really don't think it's worth any more than that. But it's also hard to pay double for a Mac Cask even though I do think its a superior pour on all accounts.

    I know, real world problems, right!??

    North of the border there is NONE remaining in Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick.

    I have noticed the NAS Mac CS varies batch to batch...some are more complex than others... not to worry about that any longer.

    I found some old CS at a small store in Houston last month.

    Other than that, nothing. I first bought it at a duty free. Had I known it was going extinct, I'd have stocked up. It's good stuff.

    You guys were lucky!
    I would have stocked up too but we haven't seen any in over a year out here and the announcement about DQ-ing it is relatively recent so we never had a chance...

    Never interested in this stuff. If it was a cask strength 12 year, I would be all over it. I find Abunah to be better. Alot of Bevmos in smaller towns has loads of this still.
