Top reviews for Ardbeg Corryvreckan:

― Lagavulin 16yo used to be my favorite whisky for more than 20 years. From now on it is this black magic liquid, which somehow manages to be more of everything that makes Lagavulin so delicious. The mouth feel is more oily and silky than anything I've ever tasted, and the high ABV does not overpower the taste in the mouth, only releasing its firepower on the way down the throat and all the way to the belly with a pleasant burn. Add a splash of water to make the burn slightly more mellow. Taste-wise this whisky definitely has smoke, peat, tar and all that good stuff, but also brings to the table a delicious roasted meat flavor, along with caramel, honey and some mint in the background. When you sip it, everything appears to arrive in a beautiful wave, a symphony of flavors riding on the crest, and then reveal its individual components, like that wave receding slowly down the beach back to the sea. Well done, Ardbeg!

― I think this just overtook Uigeadail as my favorite bottle of all time. I'm floored.

― Absolutely amazing. The mouth feel is so smooth and costing. Smell isn’t as overpowering smoke as I thought it would be, but in a good way. It’s extremely balanced. Absolutely worth every penny. I’ll try to do a blind between this and Laphroaig Cask Strength as they remind me of one another.
