The Sauternes has already had a massive impact. I have just made a comparison test with the Corrivreckan Committee and a Corry from 2009 and that is no longer quite comparable. However, the basic corryvreckan shines through with a little patience and this results in an exciting mixture, especially in the mouth.
He likes it very much! But it is also a simple recipe: take my favorite orard and finish it in my favorite wine. Can't go wrong ;-)
Unwarmed and at the current outside temperature, the Sauternes comes through almost pure, sweet grapes, vinous, nuts, a little acid, grated lemon peel, therefore quite fresh, accompanied by the vinous sweetness, almost like a well-composed dessert, with time the will show up spicy smoke, which integrates wonderfully, warms it up more, a little mint is added, slightly hinted dark chocolate can be found, but the Sauternes already sets the tone, light biscuit dough, plus the relatively reserved spicy smoke, it needs a little, but it is getting creamier and better, nuts, now even more fruity, the spicy basic tone of the Corryvreckan is also coming through more and more, a little cinnamon, is very good
creamy, oily, sweet, wow, creamiest, the Sauternes squeezes directly, winey, slightly nutty, ganache, like a dessert, sweet grapes, then the smoke comes out, ashy, light cinnamon, the Sauternes is omnipresent in the mouth
with the second sip, the Ardbeg comes through faster, clear smoke, more intense, direct bittersweet, wow, it really accelerates again, clearly still dominant Sauternes, but now much more balanced in connection with the base material, so I like it
behind it, grape-like, still quite sweet, the mouth feels drier, a little vanilla, light spice, bittersweet, the Corryvreckan also noticeably gets through in the mouth, but without the Sauternes disappearing, delicious in any case, pleasant, creamy
