    Guess he can't publicly admit to a fondness for Bourbon.

    Laphroig....just the thing to steel a man's nerve before he gets paddled by Camilla.

    Has anybody tried the "quarter cask" version of this?

    QC has some pretty polarizing opinions, just like the Triple Wood. I like them both, with more of a fondness for the TW. Neither is an improvement on the standard 10 year, or the delicious 10 year cask strength.

    I find it somewhat fruitier than the 10 y/o expression. I like it, but 9/10 I reach for the plain ole' 10 year old botthe. To me, the QC just lacks that kick in the pants that I love about the original.

    Polarizing indeed ...
    I'll take the QC @48% abv - any day - over the 10yo @40% or 43%. The 10yo cask strength I've heard (never tried it) is a different animal altogether.

    My drinking buddy got a bottle of the QC, he loves all Islays, but didn't care for it-- too ashy. We nicknamed it "Old Ashtray."
    I liked it more than he did, but then again, he's never been a smoker.

    The Laphroaig 18 yo is my absolute favorite Scotch.
