Proof66 Notes

The Supernova is a scotch that has enjoyed a few separate releases, with the most recent in 2014. Ardbeg claims it's peated "to an astonishing 100 parts per million"... which we feel is enough to peat to blow anyone's hair back when drinking. The different releases vary slightly in taste and proof with the most recent noted to be higher in sherry finish scotch (according to the learned write-up by Geoff Kleinman at Drink Spirits).

Ardbeg Distillery claims heritage back to the 18th century where it arose as the self-proclaimed "greatest distillery on earth" out of the fog of "raiding Norsemen" and "illicit" taxes. Its present version is credited to the MacDougall family who officially established the distillery in 1815. The family sold it off in 1959. Today, there is an Ardbeg Committee that meets and oversees the craftsmanship of the scotch to ensure future generations of its quality. Ardbeg styles itself as the "ultimate single Islay scotch." They also claim to be the "most peaty malt whisky in the world." This is a good or bad thing depending upon your tastes. The distillery was acquired by Moet Hennessy via Glenmorangie in 1997.
