Given the success and cult-like fan base that Ardbeg has recently enjoyed, it is almost impossible to imagine that the distillery was closed, on and off, for 15 years until it was purchased by Glenmorangie. Sitting on the southern coast line, the current distillery was founded in 1815, the original having been destroyed by excise men. The Ardbeg spirit still is fitted with a purifier which many believe accounts for its fruity, zesty character.

The whisky world watched, waited, anticipated, and salivated; finally Supernova had returned (and evolved). The presence of Sherry matured stock has imparted an extra dimension, created a deeper richness; firing up the spiciness and boosting the sweetness. But it’s still one of the peatiest Ardbegs on earth!

55% ABV / 70cl
