Currently one of the core expressions from Ardbeg. Corryvreckan is bottled at 57.1%, similar to Uigeadail’s 54.2%. You can enjoy this one neat, but with a little water you’ll get a some additional earthy notes.
Blackened ham, texas barbecue, mesquite. Well humidified cigars and white pepper. Dried raspberries and dry vanilla. Dry overall. Hints of salt and medicine.
A youthful greeting, sweet and woody. Surprisingly balanced smoke and citrus. White grapes. Hints of mustiness and bourbon. Somewhat thick mouthfeel.
Grassy bitterness, gentle warm smoke, and dry cedar. Long lasting.
A delicious whisky. My favorite of the Ardbeg core range. I would be slightly happier if it was the same price as Uigeadail (~$65). Nevertheless, Corryvreckan is an incredibly rewarding whisky!
