Ardbeg Supernova 2010 to launch on May 31st

Ardbeg Supernova 2010Oh aye. Ardbeg is releasing the second expression of its ultra peaty Ardbeg Supernova. Last year’s first edition was, according to the email they sent me, ‘released to universal acclaim’. Maybe the acclaim was indeed universal, I wouldn’t know about that really, but it certainly wasn’t unanimous. We thought the 2009 Supernova was too much too soon and we compared it to Pagani Zonda – a car so overdone it is practically pointless. Many people we spoke to last year shared our opinion. ‘Just another £80 no-age-statement from Ardbeg’ – seemed to be the chat in Edinburgh.

And so we remained sceptical about the whole Supernova malarky until one day we tasted the culprit with Rachel Barrie, Glenmorangie’s Master Blender. We fell in love instantly (with her, not the whisky) and, even though our public proposal remained unanswered, we have never said any more bad things about Supernova since (sigh… men!). Now the time has come to make it or brake it, love it or hate it. The second release – Ardbeg Supernova 2010 – will settle it. We are ready for a truly epic space battle… we even got out Star Trek fatigues out already! The only tiny tinsy insignificant detail stopping us from commencing this Armageddon is the fact we don’t actually have a sample yet. Perhaps at Ardbeg they are still slightly angry with us… ?
