Then again there is a $15 (per 750ml bottle) price difference. I just went from the Woodford to Balvenie Doublewood 12. The transition was anything but seamless, but finally settled down to going from a bed of gunny jute to pure silk.
I'm looking into adding Ardbog into my collection. NH state stores currently have 112 bottles scattered around the state @$95 each. How many should I pick up?
I like to buy bottles both for savoring and saving. Your advise is kindly appreciated,
