Overall this is a fantastic whisky. It goes for a premium price but for a limited bottling of this quality I for one believe it’s worth it.
Against the 10 yo it feels very well finished and the maturity smoothes it out very well. I’d highly recommend picking up a bottle if you can find it before they all disappear.
