Ardbeg Supernova

It’s back, and it’s on a mission to take your taste buds to peaty parts unknown…

This year’s limited edition bottling, Ardbeg Supernova 2019, will change your sensory perceptions of what whisky can be. A heavily peated Ardbeg of stellar proportions, this dram is an abduction of the senses.

Enter into realms of sweet treacle toffee, navigate thick clouds of aniseed, menthol and soot, before finally re-emerging through a dense nebular of peat and smoke. Whisky will never be the same again.

Ardbeg Supernova 2019 – the sensory abduction nobody saw coming…

Non chill-filtered at 53.8% ABV.

tasting notes

Color

Pale bronze

Nose

Clouds of pungent aniseed, menthol and eucalyptus are underscored with sweet notes of treacle toffee. Hints of peppermint, a frisson of fennel, and a mysterious camphorous scent in the far distance… With water, more toffee notes emerge with a burst of dry, earthy peat.

Palete

A tingly, peppery mouthfeel leads to a veritable explosion of intense, earthy, smoky notes – a nebular of bonfires, soot, charred oak, birch tar and menthol.

Finish

Unbelievably long, with layers of treacle toffee, aniseed, oak tannin, clove and just a hint of bittersweet, tangy Seville orange on the aftertaste.
