Still for me, the stronger Islay whiskies (Ardbeg, Laphroaig, Lagavulin) last much longer because I can get full satisfaction for a very long period just nosing and not even having a sip, where most others that I enjoy need to be drunk sooner to get full appreciation of them.
I definitely finish my Islays eventually, but a glass of Ardbeg 10 can last me a couple hours since 8 times out of 10 I just enjoy the aroma.
Interesting. I feel the same way about Speysiders. My one dram in the evening usually lasts a couple of hours.
