Learning to like whisky

I have a New Year's resolution to try and learn to like whisky. To get started, I bought a bottle of 'quarter-cask Laphroaig' at semi-random in Waitrose (based upon it saying 'smoky' on the label and being less expensive than most of the others).

I'll let you know how I get on.

If you have any whisky tips, let me know.
