My newest bottles of Macallan 12 & 18 are unopened and it's been awhile since I tasted them, but my Gleanfarclas 17 is very nice, My "105" will probably get cracked tonight since everyone has commented so favorably and I'm itching to try it anyway. :)

Comparing the Macallan 12 & Glenfarclas 12 I would give the nod to Macallan, the 'farclas at that age was kind of harsh, if memory serves. To me, the heavily sherried malts seem best either young at C/S(Aberlour A'bunadh or Macallan C/S) or Middle aged 15 to 18 (Glenfarclas 17 or Aberlour 15). The 10 to 12 range get hot and bitter to me.

Remember, beer is nothing more than premature Scotch! ;)
