ARDBEG CORRYVRECKAN 57.1% 700ML
The bisggest and peatiest of Ardbeg's "core" range. The nose is creamy and a little fruity - then the peat burst through in a masiive cloud of smoke. There's a fair whack of iodine sea-shore. The palate starts out sweet, with with hot-buttered, toasted sultana bread, bittersweet caramel and burnt honey. It dries out towards the finish, ending with salty ash, dried beef and szechuan pepper.
