This is also why I view Laphroaig 15 as a superior whisky than the 10 or the 10 CS because it is far more refined, complex and sophisticated than it's little brothers even if it is no more enjoyable than the others.
Isn't that sort of like saying that Rafael Nadal is a better athlete than Michael Phelps because Phelps has no backhand?
The 'phroaig 10 is supposed to be unrefined - you need to judge a whisky for what it is, not for what something else is, IMNAAHO.
Comparing tennis players to swimmers isn't even in the ballpark of comparing Scotch with Scotch. Let alone Single Malt Scotch with Single Malt Scotch and going even further comparing it matching Laphroaig up against another Laphroaig is downright ludicrous.
