    This is true...I'm pretty sure but not 100% that most if not all new Creeds are EdP and those sites dont know what there talking about.

The few times I've received a two year old batch have been when I ordered about now, in the start of a new year.

    Not to disagree with a prior poster, but I believe it is wrong to say that it's common practice for a 2008 batch to be sold now. That is just not true from my experience and the threads I have read. Frankly, I'd be shocked to get a five year old product from any of the above, and if it happened more than once from a reseller I'd stop using it.
    The last 3 bottles of Creed Virgin Island Water I received from ScentedMonkey were 5 years old. They were all 2008 bottles of the 1 oz. size.

    Exactly.
    I think the 75ml "grey caps" are edt. Most of those are discontinued though and hard to find.

    The last three were five years old? If it was me, if I received a five-year-old bottle, I'd have returned it and never ordered from that company again.

    I haven't ordered from scentedmonkey, so I can't attest to its practices. I ordered a 4 oz. MI from fragrancex.com last week, and just got it last night. It's a 2011 batch, and smells great.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    Yes the grey caps are considered the classic bottles only available in 75ml bottles. I do believe they were EdT. So everything you buy now from GIT, Aventus, SMW, VIW, MI, OV ect will be EdP
