It's a collection of 3x0,33l miniatures for 10, 15 and 30 YO. It's priced at about 60 euros. That sounds too good to be true, as a bottle of 30 YO costs more than 200 euros. So by buying two of those collections you get approximately same amount of 30 YO and four bottles of lesser ones - for half the price.
Didn't notice the price but I saw the set recently at World of Whiskies at Heathrow. I've had full bottles of all the ones in the set, and if the prices are correct then it does sound a bargain. I'd get in quick however... the guy in the shop told me that due to stock levels the 30 YO is getting rarer. Indeed, if you look at the Laphroaig website, the whisky in the shop jumps from 15YO straight to the 40YO (I got a bottle of the 40 YO as an engagement present recently - not opened it yet - can hardly wait though!!)
An aside - received my Whisky Mag yesterday and the 10YO Cask Strength was voted best in the Scotch category - I'd struggle to disagree with that!
Hmm, I've seen a collection of Laphroaig's, "Laphroaig Collection 47,8% 3 x 0.33 l" containing the 10yo, 10CS and 15yo, at the Schiphol airport in Amsterdam. It's priced at 63,80€ (inside the EU) resp. 45,95€ (if you're flying somewhere outside the EU-border).
Seems odd indeed if they have a collection containing the 30yo and with approximately the same price as the above mentioned..
To bad you already ordered a 30 yo..?
I don't know about you, but I could swear that the rightmost bottle in the fuzzy picture in Whisky Wizard says 30 in the label:
No, I haven't had any drams when browsing those pages. You know, alcohol does not make young stuff look old, but vice versa...

I guess so, I saw a better picture of 0,33l CS somewhere and it looked the same, though it said "10" clearly in the label. The number "1" has turned into something tree-ish because of low resolution, image compression and good imagination.
