I believe they are one and the same. The pictures certainly look the same. The tasting in issue #22 was part of a survey of 12-year-olds. I can't find #28 at the moment, but the list of whiskies tasted suggests that there may have been a survey of Speysiders. The notes are slightly different, but not significantly so. Broom's score is identical, and Jackson's is a quarter point different. This suggests to me that they actually tasted it on two different occasions for the purpose, which I think is great--it would be very easy just to pull old notes out of a file. That the notes and scores are so similar is testament in my mind to the abilities of the tasters. I doubt anyone would produce exactly matching notes on the same whisky on two different occasions, especially anyone who tastes as much as these guys.
The difference in wording is insignificant--just two ways of saying the same thing. Unless someone has information indicating otherwise, I'd assume we're talking about one expression, tasted on two occasions about a year apart.
Nothing wrong with new labels, kk--such are updated periodically for any given expression, nothing nefarious about it. But I don't think that's even the case here.
