About Ardbeg Hypernova Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Ardberg’s Hypernova is the peatiest, smokiest malt ever made by the distillery. But just how peaty is the peatiest? Maybe this info will shed some light on the situation - the maltsters on the Isle of Islay couldn’t achieve the ridiculous numbers that were required for this expression, which is 170 ppm, meaning parts per million, standing for phenol count in barley or, better said, the amount of peat smoke in the malt. Only because it was impossible to smoke the peat on the island, Ardberg Hypernova was smoked with non-Islay peat (shipping the peat from Islay to the masters on the mainland would be pretty non-environmental). This limited edition peat bomb was originally released to members of the Ardbeg Committee only. Bottled at a powerful ABV of 51%, you would expect this explosion of a whisky to blow you away with its smoke, but it instead opens new horizons of intensity, flavor, and complexity with each sip.

About Ardbeg

The southernmost of the Inner Hebridean Scottish Isles, the island of Islay (pronounced EYE-lah) is only 240 square miles and home to just over 3,000 inhabitants. Still, the island is one of just five distilling regions in Scotland whose identity is protected by law.

Ardbeg Distillery, which is situated on the southern coast of Islay, was founded in 1815 by the MacDougall family. By 1886, nearly one-third of the population of Islay worked at the distillery and today, it stands as a testament to Scottish heritage and tradition.

About Scotch

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)

Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.

Hypernova starts smoky on the nose, the aromas of salt, seaweed, seashells, tobacco, ash, pepper, a touch of citrus, and grass follow after. On the palate, there is smoke, but it is not too overwhelming: the notes of charcoal, sea salt, lemon, young oak, and creaminess make this a well-rounded whisky.
