I'm certain I'd like this, but just can't get myself to spend that amount on a stingy 43% bottling... you say it's thick & full - now just imagine how much better this could have been at 47,8% like the 15Y single barrel!

If Balvenie would wake up and use that 15YO strength as their standard then they'd get a lot more love from the hardcore Scotchdrinkers.

@Jules thanks for your input. Yes this one was pricey but it was very good at 43% and I am sure you have a valid point that at higher ABV would be great. The 15yr old single barrel is a great favorite of mine as well. Thanks again for your thoughts. (:
