Aha! The French edition of the Ardbeg Hypernova, featuring a wee little whisky cask that gets into a Hypernova (or blasted out of one?), instead of the astronaut that shows on the international version of this limited Islay Single Malt. Just 2300 bottles of the Ardbeg Hypernova French Edition hit the market. Like an exploding star radiates massive amounts of energy and light, the Ardbeg Hypernova radiates flavour in every direction. This big and intense single malt is the smokiest dram ever released by Ardbeg. With a peat level of 170 ppm, the Hypernova goes even further than the distillery’s popular Supernova series. It brings notes of pungent smoke, dark chocolate, bitter almonds and aniseed, leading to a finish of roasted coffee and smoky heather. Ardbeg Hypernova was released in October 2022 for the Ardbeg Committee and is now available for all smoky malt lovers here at Must Have Malts.
