Wow. I would never offer up these to someone who enjoyed the Glenlivet 12, but is looking for something smoother.
One is a very complex, non wood-finished malt; and the other is an over-proofed sherry bomb.
While these two may be two of my favorites, they are not what the original poster was asking for. On the other hand, these might be JUST what [s]he ends up loving!
