Ardbeg Supernova Committee Release 2014 (SN2014) 55% 70cl
Back in October 2011, Ardbeg sent a few small samples of unaged whisky into space - to research the effects of zero gravity on the liquid.
Ardbeg Supernova had already been released back in 2009 as the peatiest expression from the distillery to that date, and now Supernova and 'space whisky' has been forever conjoined.
Whereas 'standard' Ardbeg is peated to around 45-55 PPM (phenol parts per million) the Supernova bottlings were around 100 PPM - increasing the rich, full smoky flavour so associated with the distillery. The use of first-fill Sherry casks also beefed up the sweeter notes that work so well with the intense, almost oily smokiness that one finds.
This particular bottling was released in 2014, and is an exclusive bottling for Ardbeg Committee members. Only 3000 bottles were produced, and they sold out within minutes. The flavour profile is as immense as one would expect, with rich fruity sweetness underlying incredibly deep dark smoky notes.
This bottle is being sold on behalf of a customer of The Spirit Specialist. The bottle is fully sealed and intact and the fill level is high. The condition of the bottle is excellent, it is clear this has been carefully looked after - although there is a slight dink on the front label, which you can see in a close up picture. It also has the promotional neck label attached, which is also in excellent condition.
If you have any questions about this bottle or would like to see more pictures please get in touch!
