Allied Domecq (the parent company of Laphroaig) also owned Makers Mark up until 2005 (when MM was sold off to Fortune Brands), hence the facilitated corporate conection for transferring used MM Bourbon barrels to the Scottish operation.
Some people may not like Bourbon, of course, which is fine, but disliking one doesn't mean you won't like any. When I'm recommending a Bourbon to newbies I usually recommend Buffalo Trace, Eagle Rare and Woodford Reserve. For Scotch drinkers who are new to Bourbon, I direct them to Woodford Reserve and Elijah Craig 18 yo and for peat lovers, I recommend a good rye like Sazerac or Rittenhouse 100.
its good, nice full taste. Bourbon in general, seems to have a more round spicy sweet corn taste, as opposed to the more lean elegant barley taste of scotch whisky.
