Is the idea that the quarter casks age the whiskey a little faster - is that why the age isn't labelled?

I dunno. That seems a little defensive and vague for me and kind of sours the experience. It seems kind of backward for me.

JeffPorter wrote:No no...I might just have to be picky...or...Maybe it's not that big of a deal. I just checked my bottle of Glendronach 12 which is Sherri ed and quite dark but it says natural colour and no chill filtered so that's good.
It's just hard to believe that someone would spend all those years aging a whiskey just to add colour to it. Talisker 10 I guess is colored. Maybe the next bottle I get I'll just spring for an ardberg 10.
JeffPorter wrote:It was sort of my first real bottle of scotch. It's pretty great, but It's also a bit of a sherry bomb, so quite dessert-y which I kind of like. When I went to summerhill to try scotches the guy at the tasting counter recommended it as something of pretty high quality, a great starter scotch, and a really decent value.
