    Does anyone know anything about it??? I'm anxious to crack it open !!!


    I bought this a few years ago and I'm pretty sure I paid $300 or a little more. Haven't opened it yet, but I love the dragon. I think it's just a glass bottle with the dragon painted on.
    My wife was with me when I bought it, so it was "approved" on the spot. Didn't have to sneak it in.

    Believe it or not, this was also purchased on the same day: HP 30. Similar price.

    You guys are making me feel like I am bargain hunting when I buy BTAC given these scotch prices....

    I rarely buy Scotch, but when I do, I try to make it count. So today I bought a bottle of Laphroaig Quarter Cask. I've already tried some and I think I made a good decision this time.

    I agree. I can't always get the Quarter Cask, so I usually have to make due with the 10 year old.

    Great choice, Josh. I absolutely love the LQC and think it's worth its weight in gold. Enjoy!

    Nothing extravagant... another bottle of Ardmore Traditional Cask. Great stuff, for the price.
