I see the 5th edition of this book has come out here in Australia, so being a good Scotsman I bought the vastly reduced 4th edition.
In the 4th, and I found out later also the 5th, I noticed that Lagavulin 16y.o. had the same score of 95.
I didn't have time to check too many others but what I am asking is this:
Hasn't the author re-judged the whiskies included in the 4th edition on 1999, or does he think the Lagavulin of today is just as good as 8 years ago?
