Ardbeg Supernova Stellar Edition 2009

A limited edition whisky which is the peatiest Ardbeg ever - A peating level well in excess of 100 part per million
Limited Release of Ardbeg Supernova.
The product came to everyone's attention after it was initially launched to the Ardbeg Committee in Jan/Feb 2009.  It sold out (3,000 units) in the first morning.

Ardbeg Tasting Notes
COLOUR - Deep Gold
NOSE - Earthy peat, black pepper, herbal notes of juniper, elderflower and agave. Tarry ropes and creosote, currents and chilli peppers.
With water, coal tar, rolling tobacco, peat moss and roasted , malt. Smoky charcoal and asparagus.
TASTE - Smoke and salt – crushed black pepper, chilli, chocolate, rolling tobacco. Linseed oil, brine and lime. Cigar smoke and dark roasted earthy coffee, liquorice root.
FINISH - Long and powerful, with tarry peat, cocoa and chilli.

The boffins who measure and calculate everything, used something called HPLC (High Performance Drink Chromatology) to measure the peatiness of this very rare Ardbeg in infinitesimally precise amounts. After much test tube bubbling, they told us what our taste buds had already suspected, that this mighty Ardbeg has a staggering peatiness level well in excess of 100 parts per million – way beyond the customary heavy peat levels found in our famed Ardbeg 10 Years Old. SUPERNOVA thus perfectly describes this ‘stellar explosion’ of flavours
Non-Chillfiltered
