Their 1977 Bicentenary Vintage Reserve is one of the best five drams it has been my privilege ever to try, whether Scotch, Irish, bourbon, rye, or whatever.

To each their own.....I wouldn't do that (Ginger Ale) with anything other than the 12.....I would feel it would be an affront if someone didn't realize the travesty they were perpetrating by using a 15 or later in a mixed drink.
While I haven't had the privilege of anything beyond the 18. I will say, the 18 remains to this moment (with a close notable 2nd being the Aberlour A'bunadh[with a dash of water to tame the beast], following by a Macallan 30) the best spirit that's passed through my tastebuds in a neat fashion.
You can't account for taste, I took a bottle of 18 to my brother in laws for new years, only to see my nieces fiance down a dram in "shot" fashion. Brought a tear to my eye that did.
We're talking about ways to enjoy any Highland Park Scotch. Mixing with ginger ale or in a cocktail is probably better done with a younger, less expensive bottling, but if you want to use the 25-year-old, we say go for it!
