I've been a member of D&M's Aficionados' club for going on 4 years now. It was at $99.99 per bottle, now going up to $120 and even at that I think it's well worth it. I'll be getting a Tomintoul 25yo when I get back home from my trip next week. The Connoisseurs' club has always held my eye, they seem to have more cask strengths and Islays (including a Bowmore at the 1st of the year) than the Aficionados' club. A bottle I bought there a couple of years ago, a Bennrines 12yo Cadenhead had been a Connoisseurs selection. So the answer to your querry is yes IMO it's worth it!
