Well, am I?
I know you have been enjoying these whiskies for some time in the UK, but they only recently made it to the US in any quantity. As soon as I got both I did a side by side tasting. I generally like Ardbegs better than Laddies, so I was surprised at the result. I just thought the Octomore had more punch and more going on than the Supernova. This was the Octomore 1.1.
