The principle that single malt whisky gets better with age is generally true, but only up to a point. Past that point, older doesn't necessarily mean better. But when a major distillery releases a malt that's been aging for several decades, you can expect two things: One is that the distillery won't release it unless it quite literally stands the test of time. The other is that, having passed said test, it will be sold at an obscenely expensive price point — and by expensive, we mean “send your kid to college” expensive, or “buy a new car” expensive.
