It was about time we published our own notes for this baby! In case you don’t know, the Corrywreckan is a huge whirlpool that one can sometimes hear when on Islay. We heard it once, in any case. Colour: full gold. Nose: yes! We don’t want to sound like f*****g purists but Ardbeg is better at making Ardbeg. There’s as much smoke, iodine, tar, wet wool, wet clay, oysters and fresh walnuts as possible in whisky. With water: even wilder, with unexpected notes of green olives. And we love green olives… Mouth (neat): even better than on the nose. Very thick, very creamy, peaty, lemony, kumquatty (wot?), bergamotty (hey?) and rather salty. Prototypically Ardbeg, kind of a bigger Airigh Nam Beist. With water: just sumptuous. Probably one of the best young Ardbegs we ever tried (we take it for granted that it’s not an old Ardbeg.) Finish: as long as a Fidel speech. Amazing peat/pepper combo. Comments: a winner despite its slight roughness.
