In France a good bottle of whisky costs 20 to 30 euros = 25 to 40 usd (Laphroaig, Knockando, Balvenie, Talisker, Highland Park etc).
When I have a bottle at home, I drink single malt once a week, on saturday evening. One bottle usually gives me 10 sessions = 3 months. So one session costs 2.5 to 4 usd.
A pu er cake for the same price : 25 to 40 usd. 357 g / 7g each session = 50 gongfu sessions. 0.5 to 0.8 usd / session.
So if we say that the pleasure is the same for one session drinking good single malt or good young sheng pu er, whisky costs much more than pu er.
So I agree with jayinhk, drinking good whisky is much more expensive than drinking good young sheng pu er.
