I'm a bit surprised at the price, as LFW, RMW and TWE were all selling it at or around £73, but they are all now sold out!!

According to the distillery there will be 18,000 bottles released and when its gone, its gone!
Does anyone else think it is strange that the 3 major whisky shops in the UK have already sold out of Supernova, especially as there is 18,000 bottles of it??
Or you could see it as another way to boost sales - make it look like there's a real shortage (hence the limits on purchase) and drag out the supply. Isn't 18000 about the same as Blasda, which is also 'limited'? And that's still on general release with no limits on supply - so maybe it's just a clever marketing spin?
Personally I go for the latter - if it was on general release without the limits would people be buying case loads? Not according to the Blasda model.
'Hey. could you ask your dad if he knows if the current release of ardbeg supernova is a one off or if there releasing more?'
and i was giving a reply saying
'Nah its a new brand.'
My friend doesn't have a clue about whisky so i'm positive he asked his dad and got that reply.

Talking of TWE, I have just noticed they now have a special dedicated area to their IBs on their website which is interesting. I was wondering when this was going to happen.
