Whisky Reviews for Ardbeg Corryvreckan

- Thanks to Wilco for the sample!
- Although not having face to face between Corryvreckan and Uigeadail, and based on my memories, I would rather be a supporter of the Oogie because I do not see me particularly attracted by this Corry. A tip: try both to place yourself in one or the other faction.
Ha yeah, no doubt, it's big peat! Phenolic, medicinal, but also with a certain fruity sweetness (yellow apple in the head). The 57% do not attack, it is actually quite balanced but stabilizes quickly on a certain monolithism.
Surprisingly, the mouth is first honeyed, sweet, almost sweet. Candied yellow fruits, lots of peppery spices, and in the background this smoky and mineral peat. A powerful mouth, but all in all here too monolithic.
Ha there, on the other hand, it peeves in the fins! The alcohol burns a bit, the smoke becomes acrid, and a grassy drought settles. The honeyed sweetness has completely disappeared, the whole is very rustic.
- This is the best whisky I ever had until now (20140605).
The strong, supersweet, salty, peaty initial taste that explodes into waves of seaweedy, smoky, tarry, malty, peaty, sweet burning sensation is absolute brilliance for me. The long, intense, sweet, smoky and later a bit peppery dry finish only adds to the divine presence of this whisky.
I must say the typical seaweed taste that makes me praise this specific Corryvreckan isn't all that present in the L13 171 bottling I have currently open. I hope to find it in the L9 166 bottlings and maybe in the L13 145 bottling.
I'm just so happy I still have 2 closed bottles of this L12 302!
Intense aromas of ripe oranges, bitter marmalade, smoke, tar and fresh walnuts which are interrupted by subtle scents of seaweed, olives
Lemon, smoke, peat which overflow into flavors of apples, sugar, barley
A long, sweet aftertaste imbued with intense flavors of tar, coffee, chocolate and cherries with a hint of pepper
