The smokiest Ardbeg ever to mature into existence.

Introducing the latest Committee-only bottling in the Supernova Series… Ardbeg Hypernova. A dimension beyond the Supernovas that came before it, this fabric-tearingly smoky dram is a slice of Ardbeg history not to be missed.

Possibly the smokiest dram in the world (this one at least), Hypernova possesses a malty magnitude never before experienced. This is a brutally smoky dram that radiates flavour in every direction. HN22 can only be categorised as a truly cataclysmic event for the Distillery. It’s big, it’s powerful, and it’s pulling palates into a whole new dimension.

Propel your palate at full force towards powerful notes of tar, creosote and soot. Tumble further into the glass and explore ethereal whispers of aniseed, smoke and dark chocolate. Bitter almonds and smoked lavender fuse with curious hints of plasticine and burnt rubber, with a finish that collapses in on itself.

Non chill-filtered at 51.0% ABV.
