Ardbeg Corryvreckan Committee Reserve Single Malt Whisky.
Limited edition of 5000 bottles, released to committee members only in 2008.
Corryvreckan takes its name from the famous whirlpool that lies to the north of Islay. Where only the bravest souls dare to venture.
Swirling aromas and torrents of deep, peaty, peppery taste lurk beneath the surface of this beautifully balanced dram.
Ardbeg Corryvreckan Tasting Notes.
Colour : Deepest amber.
Nose: Heady, intense and powerful. Tarry ropes, creosote and linseed oil. Waxy dark chocolate, warm blackcurrants and muscovado sugar. A burst of plump cherries and earthy pine needles leaping from its depths.
Palette; Torrents of taste well up on the palate; deep, peppery and chewy, bombarding the tongue with its intense tastes and textures.
Chewy peppered steak soaked in pepper sauce with the tang of crispy seaweed.
Black tarry espresso coffee that coats the palate with rich melted dark fruits (blackcurrants, blueberries and cherries) and bitter almonds.
Finish: Long, deep and remaining powerful into the finish with black tarry coffee, chocolate coated cherries and hot pepper sauce.
Award Winning Whisky.
