  1. notesofmalt scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Ardbeg Corryvreckan, 57.1% alc. Original bottling (approx. 2020). Expansion: Bourbon casks, partly in French wine casks

    Nose: In addition to maritime peat smoke aromas, some cooked fruit, in particular slightly spicy orange marmalade. Citrus fruits next to campfire and barley malt, currants and salt water, pepper and chili. In the background I find cocoa butter and oak wood.

    Palate: Stronger than the nose, peat and lots of pepper. Spicy barbecue sauces, chili, malt and almonds. Behind them are currants and liquorice, and citrus fruits are also back. I also find plums and a slightly earthy note. The pepper is remembered.

    Finish: Very long, very smoky. Still black pepper and a lot of smoke. The bitter orange marmalade is back, along with dark chocolate and sea salt.

    Conclusion: Powerful with a lot of smoke and a fairly decent portion of pepper, but without being alcoholic. A great Islay whisky. 86/100 points (2021)

    nose:
    characteristic with fruit on citrus and wet and dirty peat, toasted, a little cooked too
    spices in bundles
    mouth:
    intense starter with peppery spices, the peat present, ready to be chewed, the cooked lemons, the zest that goes with it, the alcohol feels suddenly and amplifies the scents
    there is this fabulous mix between peat, wood, cooked ripe fruits, zan and lemon which embellishes the bottom of the palate
    final:
    intense, maritime, peat, lemony.
    that lasts and stays in the bottom of the glass.
