Could it be? A new Ardbeg Supernova? It’s certainly looking that way.
The original 2009 and 2010 Ardbeg Supernovas are noted down in the history books as the peatiest Ardbegs ever released, peated to more than 100 part per million. That could very well change though, as it appears that Ardbeg is getting ready to launch an all new SN2014 release in the not too distant future.
Details are scarce, but if the labels are anything to go by, it looks like we could have a new SN2014 Supernova on our hands which will be bottled at 55% ABV. If that’s the case, it’ll be slightly down on both the SN2010 release (60.1% ABV) and SN2009 release (58.9% ABV).
However, there’s something interesting to note on the rear label, as it looks like there’s some sherry-matured stock in the new release. A beefed-up, peat-laden Uigeadail on steroids perhaps? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
No further details at this point, but label approval appears to have been granted in the US on 8 April 2014. I’m sure we’ll be hearing more about this one in no time! I can’t wait!
