As a side note I have consumed a bottle of the 1977 21YO Bicentenary Release. I found a bit less Sherry than in the latest 12YO but a lot more peat. BTW; wasn't it 40% abv. and not 43% ?
Also agree that the 16YO 1 litre duty free bottling is sub-par re: the recent 12YO. Save the money and buy the 12YO IMHO.

I have a couple bottles of Bicentenary at home they are the 75cl US bottlings and they are 43% I believe, from everything I've heard the 70cl European bottles that came in the wooden box were 40%. I would love to get a sample of the 40% so I can compare the two since the Euopean bottle got good reviews but I can't find reviews on the US bottle.

Yes, magnificent stuff!!
Yeah there is the UK bottling @ 40% and then the US bottling @ 43% that came out a little later, not sure why they upped the proof. I havn't cracked open a bottle of it yet so I'm not sure if it is as good as the UK version which I tried at Limburg a few years back.
