Ardbeg Supernova 2019.
Returning for a very short period we are delighted to present this year's limited edition. A hugely peated Ardbeg of cosmic proportions!
Ardbeg Supernova 2019 is non chill-filtered and bottled at 53.8% ABV.
Nose: 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.
Taste: 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.
Finish: Unbelievably long, with layers of treacle toffee, aniseed, oak tannin, clove and just a hint of bittersweet, tangy Seville orange on the aftertaste.
