Wow! A 338-year-old!
(Sorry, Pat--no mercy, not even for first-timers! Consider yourself baptized, and welcome aboard.)
What distillery is this from?
I think if I were you I'd put this aside for a while. It's a very nice gift, whatever it is, and you'd kick yourself later if you returned it, but I don't think you're ready to appreciate it (and I don't mean that as a putdown in any way). You'll know
when you want to open it. Think of it as an investment in your future appreciation.
