This 2014 Ardbeg committee release sees the return of the Supernova. The first edition was bottled in 2009 and was hailed as one of the peatiest whiskies ever - and that tradition has stood with this latest installment. The Supernovas are made with 100ppm malt, compared to the standard 55pm for the rest of Ardbeg whiskies, thus making this an even peatier powerhouse than normal. Bottled at 55%
Nose: Intense zestiness of smoked lemons and pears, lemongrass and pine needles, Water droplets trigger billowing, aromatic smoke, peaty earth, heather root and applewood smoked cheese.
Palate: Gentle warmth ignites and builds to be peppery, spicy and electric. Powerful peppermint, antiseptic lozenges orbit the peaty core. Dark, dark birch tar intermingles with spicy-sweet chilli flavoured chocolate, with coating linseed oil.
Finish: Rich flavours of tar, creosote, briar wood, spicy tobacco and liquorice root. The aftertaste disappears into infinity.
