Powerful, muscular, well-textured, and invigorating.
Ardbeg Corryvreckan 2014 Bottling
First released in 2008, this mid century bottling came out of Ardbeg’s experiments in the late 1990’s. Surprisingly, it is part matured in French oak along with the usual ex Bourbon oak and I believe it to be a marriage of Ardbeg’s 10yo and Uigeadail.
From John Hansell, Malt Advocate, “Powerful, muscular, well-textured, and invigorating. Even within the realm of Ardbeg, this one stands out. The more aggressive notes of coal tar, damp kiln, anise and smoked seaweed are supported by an array of fruit.”
