The original had a splash of vanilla that i miss with the newer version. As a matter of fact i found the older one sweeter and smoother that the new, but i must admit @ $38cdn, more drinkable than the Glenlivet 12 now on sale for the same price.
This tidbit from a rescent news letter:
"Jim Murray's (George Best's double - his words not ours...) new bible gives us stunning results - Smooth Sweeter 89/100, Rich Spicy 85/100 and Smokey Peaty a whopping 92/100. He even claimed he had the idea for "whisky without the waffle" too! Flattery will get you everywhere - cheers Jim!"
I have tried all three and found each a good value.
