New Ardbeg “Supernova” is smokin’!January 14th, 2009
The sky is the limit (pun intended). Look out Bruichladdich, Ardbeg is flexing its peat smoke muscles too, with a soon-to-be released 100 ppm phenol Ardbeg called Supernova.
Word just got out on the Ardbeg website, but I wanted confirmation from my Ardbeg contact that the whisky will indeed be brought to the U.S. before posting anything. It will.
Here’s the link to the Ardbeg website, with details and a photo. Keep scrolling down past the other Ardbeg products until you get to Supernova.
There’s no mention of an age statement. I suspect it is fairly young. The price for Committee members is £65. I’m waiting on more details, which I will pass on to you as soon as I get them.
