    WT 12 year split label vs WT tribute- your choice?

    Which would you choose if both were priced about the same (especially if you have had both)?

    Having had both, my answer is unequivocal: I would buy both.

    That's as long as they weren't some ridiculously inflated price.

    That would be my answer as well. Your not going to find these again get them both that's why God made credit cards.

    If I could only buy 1, then the Tribute.

    It's true that the 12 yr is still available in export markets. The Tribute is done and is therefore a harder get.

    Mike,
    It is still available in Japan as the full label. But a recent one was not as good as the old ones IMO.

    Full label is available here. It's a nice drop.

    I doubt that that the current 12 yr is anything like the split label.
