Ardbeg Supernova

We have managed to source a very small quantity of the highly collectable Ardbeg Supernova, which is now one of the rarest whiskies on the planet. Ardbeg Supernova is one of the peatiest whiskies made, yet it is also intensely spicy and unfathomably sweet. Truly a mystery of the universe.

This final, fleeting Committee bottling of Ardbeg Supernova heralds the culmination of Ardbeg's experiment in space. It's original release coincided with the publication of Dr Bill Lumsden's highly anticipated White Paper on the mysteries of zero gravity maturation.

This opportunity will never be repeated, so get it whilst you can.

Distillery Tasting notes.

A big bang of peat... then heavenly sweet... with a lingering trail of smoke.

Colour: Shimmering pale gold

Nose: A shower of peppery, aromatic herbs shoots through the air, scattering particles of effervescent perfume. In its wake, smoked fruits, briny seaweed and fennel. The sensation comes full circle with the earthy, grounding aroma of vetiver root. Add a few drops of water and luscious linseed oil comes to the surface, sending wafts of sweet smoked toffee, brazil nuts and soot into the atmosphere.

Taste: At 100ppm, the peat is firing on all cylinders, with blasts of spice, salted caramel and billowing smoke. And then it's back to the laboratory, where antiseptic lozenges, medicinal notes and zingy aniseed intermingle with dark tar and intense chilli-spice.

Finish: Prepare for a long, lingering, peppery aftertaste that goes on and on and on...
