Probably running a distillery in Scotland during the era of the Prohibition in the US is not quite the high bar that TFA would seem to imply

The MacAllan is not the slightest bit peaty or earthy.  It's aged in sherry barrels from Jerez, Spain and tastes unique, in my opinion, among Scotch whiskeys.  Also one of my favorites.

My... informed... opinion.

Try it sometime, it's fun.

//MacAllan, or having an informed opinion?
/yes

I, too, like the Macallan.  But, then again, sometimes I'm in the mood for a Laphroaig.  Almost opposite ends of the spectrum there...

Every Macallan I've tried has been noticeably sweet, and becomes almost cloying with a little water. But I'm a peat bomb person so YMWV most likely.

What's a whisky "collection"?

The psychology behind this kind of collection is really strange.  The value is the rarity of the liquid in the bottles, presumably the best tasting liquid of its kind, but also liquid that you will never ever taste since in doing so will completely destroy it.  Great art you can look at and enjoy, but this is just a bottle.  Maybe the label is interesting but otherwise it's really just an old object with no other value besides its history.
