    I tried a glass from whisky.de - it loses significantly to Blender's Glass. Perhaps the cask strength will be just right, but for now testing from Blenders ...
    Comparative tasting of 2006 and 2016 bottling - 10 years later ...

    2006:
    Aroma: smoked meat, salt and spices, BBQ coals, aroma is not aggressive and sweet, after habituation the receptors mean meadow grasses and hayfields ... peat is very edible ... 22
    Taste: oily, smoked meat, soldier's belt leather and pipe tobacco 23
    Finish: long-lasting, pleasant, warm, with a slight bitterness 22
    This is the Lag that I fell in love with at one time - 89

    2016:
    Aroma: in comparison with 2006 it is different - in the foreground candies and vanilla in peat ... Very edible, smoked meat again, charcoal on the grill ... 22
    Taste: lacks fat, more watery ... still smoked, but already a lot of herbal bitterness and spice ... 22
    Finish: long-lasting, smoked with a herbal bitterness ... 22
    It differs from 2006, but not as it is customary to scold - this is an excellent Lag - 88
