I was at a whisky tasting presented by a member of this forum, as it happens, and he said that for some reason the Italians love their 5 yr old whiky. They drank so much of it, Glen Grant ran out of 5 yr old so started selling 7 yr old as 5 yr old (ok, I'm not sure if it was 7 yr old exactly, but it was somethingl like that). It went on and on and the whiskys got older and older, but they were still labeled 5 yr old. Ultimately, who knows how old the whisky you're tasting is.
Anyway, it's very inexpensive in Italy. I suppose it's worth a try, but i didn't have any.
