I'm not in a position to answer the poll, but I will say that the 15 I sipped while sitting in Iain Henderson's chair will likely never be topped.

I was so tempted to click the last option...... :twisted:

Of the current (last 5 years) the QC does it for me , the 10/40% is going downhill rapidly (46%/NCF would be nice new owners!) , the 10yo /CS was one of the most disappointing bottles i've ever had the pleasure of opening , so much expected , so much missing !
The 15 and the 30 ? not much there (Certainly not at £200 a bottle for the 30) .
As for the 40 , my darling wife summed it up in the Lochside "Smells of Musty , Old Men !" , needless to say Alistair found it highly amusing !

I'm somewhat amused at the inspiration for this poll question! :D :lol:

(See poll, "Are polls a waste of my time?") :wink:

If I could only have one, the QC would beat the 10CS and the 15, but only by a razor-thin margin in my opinion. Each has plenty to offer.

I haven't tried the standard 10, and, as for the 30 and 40, they're much too expensive for me to even consider.

Admiral - it was too good an opportunity to pass up. Credit where it is due.
