Ardbeg Supernova 2015 Bottling Note

Ardbeg, in case you didn't know, sent some maturing spirit into space. Or, more accurately, tubes of "Ardbeg-crafted molecules" that also contained sticks of charred oak. The idea was to compare their interactions to those of control samples on earth and the results have now been published.

To celebrate the conclusion of Ardbeg’s experiment in space, they released this final Committee release of the super-duper-peated Supernova single malt. At 100PPM (phenolic content measured in parts per million) compared to Ardbeg's usual 55PPM, this is one of the most heavily-peated whiskies in the world!

This bottle was part of a private collection - if you'd like more detailed photos just get in touch!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Deep with smoked chilli, soot, vanilla, green banana and linseed, tinned nectarines, cocoa and vanilla.

Palate: Super peaty toffee, crystallised ginger, lime marmalade, star anise, iodine, sweet vanilla and espresso.

Finish: Candied peels and chilli.

Overall: On separate occasions try jumping straight in versus building up to it with another peated malt. There's more to this whisky than just peat, but on the latter occasion you should find the fruitier side yet more pronounced.

Ardbeg Supernova 2015 (SN2015) - Committee Release Reviews

The very best whiskey I've ever had!

The very best whiskey I have ever had! My preferences/favorites are Laphroaig quarter cask and Lagavulin 16.

Overpriced

I did not really like this Ardbeg, worst of the 10 I've been drinking so far. You need kinda much water to enjoy it and Octomore is much better.
It would get 4 stars if it wasn't that pricey..

Undervalued!

A shot-to-the-moon fully peated punch - brings the taster back down to earth as he finds dozens notes some sweet and some earthy; clays, ash, campfire, and fields of barley seated in this scotch. Ardbeg provides evidence to their mastery of blending multiple worlds.

Stunning

Tried at the distillery - highlight of the trip to Islay.

Peerless Gaffer Juice

Jings, Islay whisky always sits at the pinnacle of fine drams in my estimation; and each has its own unique attraction. This very special Ardbeg has just built a new cairn at the very top of my Islay mound. Sipping tonight as I sit on deck of my wee Gaff-rigged Hooker, and watching the sun set over Islay, Jura and more, my contentment is complete. Superb! Congratulations to all at Ardbeg.

Best Ardbeg ever, period.

Absolutely amazing stuff if you can find it.

Unctuous

In the ascended world of billionaires there must be superlatives. This is that spirit.

Wonderfully surprising

A beautiful blend of the typical ardbeg peat and smoke with a softer finish. Make no mistake at 54% it is strong and definitely full of phenols with a heavy ethanol finish but somehow manages to be balanced and diminishes to fruity, if not slightly salty, finish. One of the best from ardbeg. Like a super charged corryvrecken
