Logically, there seems no reason there would be any difference between Magnums and regular bottlings in regards to any `threat` obtaining a `bad` bottle. Personally, I enjoy larger formats several times for the following reasons:

They typically age slower in the larger format.
They serve well for larger groups.
Are fun to present at a celebration or gathering.
I enjoy collecting them
They can often bring a higher price at resale, should you ever decide to do so.

I see your points KSC, but I guess my concern is, 2 bottles of 750 are less likely to both be corked vs 1 mag? I wasnt sure if Mags are less likely to be bad due to volume within the bottle? Or if that has anything at all to do with it?

I`m thinking volume has nothing to do with this. I`ve never read of `volume` having any influence, one way or another on these issues. In fact, barrels themselves can become contanimated. However, I have no facts to back up this statement. Purely my `logic` and opinion.
