Scottsdale Costco

Okay, I'll admit it . . . I needed something to wash down the combo pizza slice . . .

Lunch Break TV: $17,000 bottle of scotch at Costco

I wondered why my bill was so high. I thought it was mouthwash. Oh well, still have the bottle.

Classic spectacle marketing here. Claude Hopkins would be proud. People haven't changed much in 100 years, and I doubt they ever will.

Macallan 12 is impressively unimpressive. I had the 25 once, and it was very nice. I'm curious what the 60 is like, but not $17,000 worth of curious.

$1K per shot . . . such a bargain.

A little more than 25 years ago I had a sip of some Grand Marnier that was then more than 100 years old. The waiter brought out the hand-painted bottle to show us and the hosts bought two shots for the table (seven of us IIRC) to share. They were $125 each.

Still the most expensive sip of pretty much anything I've ever had.

But this? That's just crazy. Who is buying that? Collectors?

Wonder if they offer free samples of it!

This makes my occasional $200 bottle of Royal Salute seem very unimpressive.

It'll end up behind some Bankster's bar, and will get opened and fawned over at some late, coke-fueled bull session.
The average scotch snob couldn't tell it from a pull off a 40 dollar bottle of Glenlivet I'll wager.

If you get terrible service then the tip to the service should be ten percent. What should the tip be for great service?
