Struggled with the price point on this one. The 30 year was easily rivaled by the 12 year for a fraction of the price. Had similar vanilla and cinnamon notes but had a rather harsh bite on the finish. Was glad to have tried but wasn't terribly impressed.

I think this is incredibly delicious and very complex. A great long-lasting finish. Am I simply impressed by the fact that this is a 30-year old for under $200 (US)? I'd like to think not. If my tasting is unbiased, then this truly is a remarkable single-malt at a very extraordinary price. I've spent a lot more on Scotches of this age. Aw heck, try the sample and decide for yourself!
