Served neat, cut and uncut. Luckily had this at a tasting and didn't need to blow $135 on a bottle.
Pour: Very clear white grape juice color...chardonnay like other Ardbegs. A thick rings sticks to the side with a swirl generating slow tears.
Nose: Musty atiic, sharp honey, mild salty bacon, old/crumbling smolder and fireplace, with spicy coconut curry. Cut, the nose explodes with heavy ocean brine and salty meat/jerky.
Taste: Lots of heat in the back, spicy oak, coconut curry, amaretto, floral spices. Cut, the taste gets a little muddy and I'm not sure if it was smart to try this with water.
Would like to try this again, but for now I like the Uigeadail better but neither of those come close to Corryvreckan. Still, I would love to get this a few more tries as long as I'm not the one footing the bill.
