Ardbeg Supernova 2015 Release Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)

Islay, SCOTLAND
$750. 00 Bottle
$9000.00 Dozen
ABV: 54.3%

Note: Bottle has come from a private collection and as such has some minor scuffing/handling marks. 

Released in September 2015 (originally for committee members only), this is reportedly the last of the Supernova series and potentially one of the most compelling to date. At 100ppm the peat will be firing on all cylinders. Expect something akin to a super-charged Corryvrecken. Very limited stocks.

Other reviews... Gosh! Few whiskies pulse so impressively, or smoky, the next gritty, then acidic...Not peat on steroids, as someone once described it, to me this is far too natural and beautiful...a huge beast of a malt with seemingly insurmountable peat...until it encourages, then allows you to climb on its back. Magnificent. 54.3 % Alc./Vol.
