Cauldron of the speckled sea (aka Corryvreckan) is a whirlpool, the 2nd largest in the world, located between the Isles of Islay and Jura. It is also the name of this whisky. Here are some more facts for you, kid. It is, at its base, Ardbeg 10 with whisky added that spent its life exclusively in French Limousin Virgin Casks. At least it did until it was married with the 10 year old and into your bottle.

Tasting Notes

"Bottled at 114 proof, this spins you right 'round, baby right 'round. Smoky bacon fat turns into seaweed turns into blackberries turns into cigar ash turns into white pepper; such a fun ride, this whisky is. This certainly isn't your old man's Scotch."
