I wish the QC was priced at 30 USD like in the States. Here it's 65 USD pr bottle. I'm caught in a bad circle

Mr Ellen wrote:I do think they could have done it like Ardbeg did on their "Very Young" expression when they stated "For Discussion" across the label. It's really hard to notice a difference at first glimpse. (Not that it matters..I'm going to drink them all anyway )

I would be more worried about the Highland Park 25.........

It's available in Tesco and Oddbins for £26
I have never seen any age statement regarding the QC, but here David states that the QC is 5 years old (normal cask) Laphroaig which is then finished for 7 months in the (105 litre) Quarter Cask.

But this QC is a stunner. I've only been into whisky for about 2 years, and this is the first time that I've wanted to go out and buy a couple of back up bottles. (Though this Caol Ila Signatory 18 UCF is making me wish I'd picked up another when I had the chance!).
This one is special.
