Ardbeg Supernova is a special edition launched in 2009, originally for the Committee—a club created in 2000 for fans of the distillery, whose loyalty is rewarded with access to exclusive bottlings such as this one. It is more heavily peated than other Ardbegs, coming in at a whopping 100 ppm. Following the success of this bottling, other editions for the general public were released in 2009, 2010, 2014, 2015 and 2019. This is a 2014 edition.

The distillery Ardbeg

Scotland, Isle of Islay. Distillery operational. Owner: LVMH - Diageo

Founded in 1815 by McDougall & Co. in the south-east of Islay, near the Kildalton Cross, Ardbeg's malt was for a long time overshadowed by its neighbours and competitors Lagavulin and Laphroaig.It was under the patronage of the McDonald family (Glenmorangie Plc), who bought the distillery in 1997, that it was able to develop its potential and introduce the public to the treasures sleeping in its vaults. Between September and November 1997, no less than three bottlings - two of which would become great classics - were released on the market, the Ardbeg 17 Year Old, Ardbeg 1978 and Ardbeg Provenance 1974. The following decade was rich in single cask, cask strength bottlings matured in sherry and bourbon casks, each more impressive than the next. And it was dressed in a new green bottle with confident Celtic-Gothic aesthetics that Ardbeg flooded the market for fans of malts dominated by aromas of smoke, peat and tiger balm.
