Not sure why the 10 is so much less than everyone else, but the store that has the DE seems to get bulk clearance stuff from the distributor at a huge discount. It's the same place I got the Cragganmore DE for $39, Glenmorangie 15yo for $39, Glenmorangie 10yo for $24 with crystal tumblers and the Burgundy and Madeira for $34. I've just about cleaned them out for future stock.

Not really. I live in a dry county and the closest store I call "local" that has even a decent selection is 60 miles away. The drive is through scenic mountains so it's not all bad. The ones closer are limited to Glenlivet, Glenfiddich and a few blends. Best selections are in Little Rock, 120 miles or Dallas, 240 miles. Since the state eliminated the over-the-limit law, I just load up when I can road trip.
I really enjoy both, and they are as different as apples and oranges. Tal 10 is one of my everyday drams, and the Distillers Edition, is a little sweeter, sherry, yet with all the Talisker characteristics (smoky,salty, little fire). The D.E. really hits the spot when I'm in the mood for it.
I think the Dist. Ed. is well worth the the $17 difference we pay for it here.
But whereas the Talisker 10 is a "regular dram" that I would drink regularly, I tend to drink the DE less often due to the price difference.
