    Well we ended up with some terrible cigars courtesy of my friend not doing his job on his day off and getting our supply. We got there after I finished work only to find it closed, so we ended up with some terrible atrocities we got at the local liqour store, yech. We ended up going with the Dalwhinne and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The best thing was I discovered at the place I bought it they were selling laph 10yo for $56 a bottle ($10 cheaper than the Dal and pretty much cheaper than everything bar Glenlivet and fiddich), I'll be going back for that!

    I'd have to agree. I've had a... lot of SMS but ultimately I find myself rebuying QC, HP18, and Talisker 10yr constantly to have everyday.

    Of course, I have a bunch of 25+ yr, rare, out of production, from defunct denim mill type shit sitting in storage waiting for a special occasion to crack open. I just hope I'm not like 80yrs old with a failing liver by the time I get around to it.

    Mostly a bunch of indy Brora and PE. Also a couple Glenugies I unearthed while traveling. A few low end bottles of things people are familiar with but circa 1990. I don't know... haven't gone through the stash lately. Nothing too baller (ala early 70's Ardbegs).

    QC doesn't have a specified age. People think it may be 8 years, but the 10 year is all 10 year. Sort of like the difference between a vintage and non-vintage bottle of champagne. I think also the QC is a blend.

    Haven't picked it up yet I just got it bc it was 35 bux, supposed to be more peaty than smokey since it ages more rapidly than in the normal cask. Personally I really enjoy regular L10.

    QC has no age statement, but it is speculated that it is between 5-8yrs. When drinking, it has the characteristics of a whisky that has been aged longer but if you buy into the smaller cask/more surface area/quicker maturing theory (which I do), it makes sense. It is also bottled at 48% ABV. It's still a single malt. The 10yr is bottled at 40% ABV for the standard and 50+ for the CS (obviously). In general terms, the QC has less smoke but much more of the peaty/earthiness to it (a benefit of the youth of the whisky)... but really, this would be comparing 3 different whiskies. QC is the one Laphroaig you can drink everyday. The 10yr CS is what you finish a long evening with. The 40% 10yr is what you get when you're a broke college student. [​IMG]

    Is that the equivalent or worse than someone who buys a $29.99 humidor?

    Seriously though, we should combine forces. Everyone will win.
