They did, from the 50.7% level down to the current 48.1%.
What's of even greater concern to me, however, is John Hansell's (of the Malt Advocate) writing that Highland Park has already initiated plans to reduce the strength of the 21YO from 47.5% to 40%, owing to the lower overall cask strengths of the stocks from the mid to the late 1980s. Furthermore, the strengths of the 25YO and 30YO expressions, for the same reasons, may be altered in the (near?) future.
