Ardbeg Supernova returns

02 June, 2010

Islay’s Ardbeg distillery has launched the second edition of its single malt Supernova, described by the company as “the peatiest Ardbeg ever”.

A preview bottling of the first edition sold out last year in a record 112 minutes when it was offered for sale online to members of the Ardbeg Committee, a group of 53,000 fans.

The second edition – Ardbeg SN2010 – has the same high levels of peatiness as the 2009 release but with a higher strength at 60.1% abv and a “deeper, earthier character”, according to the distillery.

Dr Bill Lumsden, head of distilling and whisky creation, said: “The intensity of flavours is Ardbeg at its most powerful and peaty and yet we always have that delightful layered, sweet complexity that makes Ardbeg such a sensational dram.”

Ardbeg SN2010 will be available in limited quantities online at ardbeg.com and at specialist whisky shops with a recommended retail price of £80.
