There seemed to be talk of two things: the anniversary of the 10yo and the anniversary of the Committee. Maybe two bottles are coming. :D

With all the different Finlaggan's I've tried, I would suggest that there is a high probability that the contents change. One was remarkably like an Ardie but otheres bore resemblence to Laphroaig and Caol Ila.
