Ardbeg Supernova is one of the most explosively peaty expressions the Islay Distillery has ever created. It was originally launched in 2009 and made its most recent appearance in 2015 to celebrate the return from orbit of the Ardbeg space experiment. This popular limited edition is now set for a brief and earth shattering return to the Ardbeg Committee embassies in October 2019.
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. 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. Unbelievably long finish, with layers of treacle toffee, aniseed, oak tannin, clove and just a hint of bittersweet, tangy Seville orange on the aftertaste.
