I tasted the 2010 twice now, it is very young and overly soapy. Like the Blasda but with peat - or like a combination of: a) the first Supernova release b) Rollercoaster (which I like quite a bit) c) a lot of soap

Drinkable, but no way a great whisky. Seems to sell badly, too (I am told by merchants). The original Supernova is more distant in the taste, but so much more of a HQ whisky...

To sum it up, the 2010 version is a complete and utter sellout, if you ask me.

I'm quite shocked by the low score this bottle has recieved on here (2 out of 3 scoring 7.5 or less).

I sampled this last weekend as part of a little Ardbeg tasting session i had. I tried the 2010 Supernova, Uigeadail and my standard 10yo. And i was blown away by the SN2010.

I was secretly hoping to prefer the Uigeadail as i planned to buy a bottle of either the Uigeadail or the Supernova depending on which i prefered. And the Supernova is obviously the more expensive one. Oh well.
