Default High OG and botteling

I brewed a beer that had an OG of 1.100 and a FG of 1.030 for a calculated ABV of 9.3%. The yeast I used was Windsor and was wondering if I should add another pack of yeast when I bottle because of the yeast working so hard during primary? Thanks for the help.

You should be fine without adding yeast, i bottled a RIS with an OG of 1.120 and a FG of 1.024 and it was fine

I'd think you will still be ok

Isn't Windsor known for low attenuation? It might be maxed out, and on the other hand introducing a new yeast might bring the gravity down a bunch more.
