Ardbeg Hypernova Single Malt Scotch Whisky

$439.99

Size
750ml, bottle

Ardbeg Hypernova single malt Scotch whisky, heralded as the smokiest Ardbeg ever created. Matured in unique casks, it delivers an intense and powerful flavor profile with hints of malt and a lingering smokiness.

Description

Ardbeg Hypernova single malt Scotch whisky is not for the faint of heart. It’s a bold and powerful dram that pushes the boundaries of smokiness in Scotch whisky.

Aroma

Dominated by an intense peat smoke aroma, reminiscent of a bonfire on a windswept beach. Hints of iodine and sea spray mingle with the smoke, creating a truly Islay experience.

Palate

The first sip explodes with an intense wave of smoke and char. Underlying this smokiness, notes of malty sweetness and a touch of dark chocolate emerge. Hints of dried fruit and licorice add a touch of complexity.

Finish

Incredibly long and lingering, the smoke continues to dominate, slowly giving way to a hint of pepper spice and a touch of salinity.

Tasting Notes

Nose

Nose

Power, pungent, almost brutal in its intensity, with waves of tar, smoke, sea salt and an almost ƒ??barnyard' aroma in the background. There is some restrained fruitiness, reminiscent of flowering blackcurrants, and very pungent burst of peppermint

Palate

Palate

An explosive, peppery mouthfeel leads into a most curious juxtaposition of flavors - sweet chocolate, cooling peppermint, pungent peat smoke, bitter almonds, and then a hugely long, lingering burst of spices like aniseed and clove

Finish

Finish

The enormous, heavy smoke is always present and even as the aftertaste starts to build, the aromatic, heathery smoke never fades, it remains right to the very end
