Slightly less smoky that the 10 year, with a smooth, peat-filled finish, 1/4 cask is downright delicious! If you are looking to introduce someone to Single Islay Malts, this is a perfect stepping stone into the bolder more pronounced flavors they bring!
I had a couple of Scottish friends over and we opened a 10 Year Laphroaig we bought in 2004 in Edinburgh. To my big surprise they did not like the smell or the taste at all! What makes this Whiskey so different from others and should I store it longer or did I keep it too long already?
