Believe it or not I kind of thought it was going to be around 20 bucks. Even though it's 30 years old that doesn't matter since it's not in a cask and I know once it's bottled that's it for the aging process. I know that particular brand is a top seller world wide. Those kooky Japanese are actually expert copycats. I know the formula is based on Scotch at least. Interesting stuff to find out though.Thank you again for your help I really appreciate it.
