|The final release of the very heavily peated (100ppm compared to the standard 55ppm) Ardbeg Supernova. This was originally released to Ardbeg Committee Members only; however a small number of these rare bottles have become available via our international network of collectors. This single malt was launched to celebrate the completion of Ardbeg's zero-gravity maturation project, where the distillery sent whisky and charred oak into space to age.|

Nose: gosh! Few whiskies pulse so impressively, or for quite so long, with a slight mocha sudplot to the ever-interchanging peat one moment smoky, the next gritty, then acidic… Not peat on steroids, as someone once described it to me… this is far too natural and beautiful..! Taste: a consuming delivery: frisky, smoky, sugary, ashy, playful, stern... and naturally, as Ardbeg will, amid all the enormity, comes the counterpoint of delicate citrus... Finish: long, with the grist still leaving behind its smoky essence, like a comet might leave its lingering tail... Balance: in many ays an essay in balance. This is a huge beast of malt with seemingly insurmountable peat... until it encourages, then allows you to climb upon its back. Magnificent. 54.3%
