The Whisky Tasting Club has tasted the new Supernova going on sale next week. Dominic was sent a sample. Dominic says:

"Ardbeg Supernova is significantly different to the first bottling but an absolute stunner all the same. It’s a train track whisky, with one rail massively peated, peppery and hot, and the other fudge-like, soft and with banana toffee notes. At a hefty 60.1% ABV it warrants sipping without water but explodes in to a complex oral rainbow with a touch of water. Quite wonderful."

Tony bought a bottle at the festival, he says "hmmm, peaty and very strong, my favorite. I have to say though, at £82 its very expensive, damn you collectors!"

Sounds great! Although is any whisky 10/10? Better try some and find out.

tbh I didnt want to score it, but I had to click on something! I dont think its always that helpful to score because we all calibrate differently. I personally would give it something like 96 but I have no idea of Dominic's score and know he would not be that keen on providing one. Suffice to say, we loved it and if you like peat you will love this whisky

OK, so Jim Murray gave the predecessor of this whisky a great score. But that to me is no reason to redo the committee bottling this once was. A complete sellout.... I just wish they had come up with something new instead, and left the original Supernova alone.

hi galg, not the best but for me its in the top 5% of whiskies I've drank, so hence the score. Scoring is very subjective though!
