Ardbeg Corryvreckan Review

Ardbeg Corryvreckan Time for yet another Peat Monster, this time the whirlpool of a dram known as Ardbeg Corryvreckan.

Named after a Whirlpool this lovely Ardbeg has some youthfulness to it that i think adds to it's character, the wood influence is still strong in the spirit and it's a little sharp because of that but i think that works wonders for it.

You can pick up a bottle of this lovely Peaty dram from Master of Malt amongst others.
