May 20 2010 On Tuesday night I found myself at a Macallan scotch tasting, where we got to sample five of the brand's award-winning whiskeys. My favorites were the 10-year and the 18-year. While I thoroughly enjoyed learning more about Macallan and Scotland in general, I was surprised when I scanned the crowd and noticed it was mostly men. I sip the caramel-colored spirit often, as do several of my best female friends. How about you? Is it too strong for you?
