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.

My experience was a little different. The Nova was "smoother: and had alot
of finesse. Frankly, I was surprised by the "fluidity" of the peat with the sweetness of the malt - they meshed very well. The Octomore seemed "rough around the edges", especially when tasted side by side with the Nova.
Maybe we need to do "further research"!
