Peated Single Malt — Islay, Scotland
Reviewed August 21, 2020 (edited September 15, 2020)
Tasted from two-of-two 50ml samples that came with my 10Yr old Ardbeg purchase. The other sample was the Corry. So naturally, I had to do a side-by-side. Here are my initial SbS taste “observations” Even though cask strength, this drank smoother than the Corry. Also had more fruit notes. Still very enjoyable but gave an ever so slight, minuscule edge to the Corry at the time. I have a bottle of both to spend time with. Who knows, maybe over time I’ll reverse myself. Again, initial sample observations. Will add more detailed tasting notes after cracking full bottles.
