I recently sat down with the 10 year and Quarter Cask to do a direct comparison. I am not well versed in detecting the subtle nuances of what I experience, but I know what I like.

Nose: There is some sweetness, and definitely an ocean air aroma along with the soft bite of alcohol. Only a hint of smoke, surprisingly little knowing what's coming.

Body: Light to medium, smooth and velvety

Palate: Rich, warm smoke, impressively smooth and balanced. I don't get a lot more than this smoke personally, but it's so pleasant perhaps I can't look past it.

Finish: Medium to long, the smokey peat trailing off gently.

The end result? I actually prefer this a little bit over it's brother the Quarter Cask. I'm in the smaller camp there though, perhaps.
