How well does it go with Cheetos?

Wow, I saw the ad for this scrolling through social media and didn't click because it sounded stupid not even knowing the price.

Dear social media ad people: if I'm that rich please tell me where I hid it.

Pretty happy with Old No. 8 in a pimento cheese glass.

This particular edition was poured out of its cask in 1995, making it a 31-year-old whisky, and then stored in "neutral containers" which won't affect the flavour of the liquid until it is put up for sale. It is bottled at 49.6 per cent alcohol per volume, or ABV (by law, a Scotch whisky must be bottled at minimum 40 per cent ABV). In comparison, an unfortified wine is generally around 12 per cent ABV.

That's a lot of info for something that's probably just gonna sit on a shelf as a show piece.

On one of our Bourbon tours, we were told that 23** years was the longest Bourbon can improve in the barrel. After that it starts to degrade. I imagine that Scotch has a similar constraint.

**Some tiny worry keeps bothering me that it may be 27 years.
