Holy smokes, ruige whiskey
Holy smokes, ruige whiskey
This whisky is top of the bill, one that knocks you off your socks, but in a good way! This is a cask strength whisky, but not an overpowering ABV level.
Vanilla lemon cake, sweet peat and a hint of smoke on the nose. Palate is juicy with some sweet and savory notes, a hint of orange, chocolate and peat. The finish is long and peppery, sweet and savory.
Caramel, raisin, plum pudding, sherry, cinnamon, vanilla, tad of peat, bold, no pepper

My favorit Ardbeg.
great peated, have many taste. sweat, spicy, smoky. big shock, but I like it.
I really want to like this, but am not completely feeling it. That seems odd, because I love Uigeadail.
brilliant twist on the Ardbeg known taste
sweet. slightly smoky. briney
My favourite whisky!
Sweet whisky with smoke and turf flavours.
It is complete! Love it!
Aroma: viel Rauch, würzig, leicht süß, Seegras, minimaler Anteil an Frucht, Salz
Geschmack: viel Rauch, würzig, salzig, leicht süß, leicht pfeffrig, ölig, leicht bitter, wenig fruchtig
Abgang: viel Rauch, Chili, Pfeffer, Salz, leichte Eiche, herb
Fazit: Find ihn ein klein bisschen unangenehmer im Mund als den Ardbeg Uigeadail. Trotzdem schön ölig im Mund und dieser Rauch ist einfach der Wahnsinn! Find ihn im Abgang einen Tick zu brennend. Aber geil komplex und auch ausgewogen. Mag ich!
smoky with salinity and a peppery finish. a lovely dram
Toller Ardbeg, neben dem schönen Lagerfeuerrauch hat er eine interessante Süße und besondere Eiche (Rotwein?). Er schlägt den 10er - den ich liebe - nochmal deutlich. Wow!
n: pleasant, light, citrus, peat, mineral/earthy

One of my favourites,a powerful whisky with lots going on, like a peppered steak with lots of sweet dark fruits, some brine and vanilla and obviously lots of peat smoke.
Peaty, smokey, peppery and very flavour some. Highly recommended for peat fans
dont like turfed (burnt) wiskey so...
Smoke and fire, this spicy, oily and a bit over the top. A big and funky scotch.
nice Ardbeg with all the peat and creamy sweetness you expect, I don't find the Burgundy cask influence though
very peaty, cereals, bitter (orange), chocolate, phenolic, very strong
peaty to carbonaceous, heavy and buttery, a bit fruity, pepper
nice, warm and salty
Smoke, oily and pepperish. sharp and warm turning sweet.
Nose: not nearly as peaty as for example ardbeg 10. Strong abv. Chocolate. Seaweed
Taste: much richer than ardbeg 10. Explosion of flavours. Spice. Dark fruits. Delicious
punch you in the face peat and smoke. my favorite ardbeg so far.
Best nose out there!
Barbecue, smoke, wood, white grape sweetness
Hard to pick up palate
Oily and hot
Smoke Brine, not as sweet as Uigeadail
Smoke, brine, BandAid
Peaty smoke, earthy, sweet fruit,
Peppery smokey high proof burn, BandAid
nonchillfiltered, non coloured, 57% ABV.
rich, peat, leather, earthy, sweet
mild spice but not given high ABV, smoke, campfire, slightly sweet, well-rounded
long, peaty finish. You can taste this for days!
smokeyness, I find it hard to distinct flavors behind the thick layer of peat smoke.
Herber Raucher. Schöner Islay Malt, könnte nach meinem Geschmack aber mehr Aromen in Richtung Frucht/Süße vertragen.
Deutlicher, aber weicher Rauch. Weiche Süße (dunkle Schokolade, Karamell). Holz
Wenig Frucht und Süße. Eher herb. Ich suche nach deutlichen Charakteristika. Könnte spannender sein.
Am Ende etwas pelzig.
seaside salt and smoke. A nice combination.
peat, salt, smoke
Unique the best
Nose: Oak smoke, like hickory. Salt. Custard?
Mouth: Thin like the 10. Billowing bon fire. First sip is a punch to the face. Smoked meats over hickory. Brine. Pepper.
Finish: Long and spicey. Warms the throat. Just damn delicious.
Nose: smoke and peat up front with citrus notes following behind, honey, sweet cream, semi-floral with seaside salty air in the mix
Palate: classic Ardbeg smoke and peat, followed by intense hot chili pepper spice with the classic citrus/honey/vanilla cream notes ever present
Finish: long, spicy, hot, smoky
WARNING: not for the beginner; this is a potent beast, but truly excellent.
Everything you've read about this mythical beast is true, it's simply amazing. It's like being punched in the face then laid gently down on a pit of burning embers. It's a yin to the sherry yang of the Oogie, and a whole lot more tumultuous than the 10 expression.
The initial salty punch gives way to a myriad of flavours that simply burst through like a kaleidoscope of taste sensations, ending with a ridiculously long and woody finish that you can still taste for breakfast the following morning.
This is an astonishing experience, let alone as a whisky; and utterly captivating
Heavy, peaty, awesome.
2017-05-05 Ardbeg, Islay
really peaty, leather, dried fruit, nuts, a hint of dark coffee, a really strong peat and smoke just goes up when swallow it
Le goût salé de l'ocean, puis le bois brûlé et une finale tabac à pipe
sel, bois brûlé,
tabac à pipe
Just the way I expected it. Smoke, peat and a salty flavor. Perfect for Islay-lovers
Tons of smoke. its peatier and less sweet than the Uigeadail, and has an ashy dryness that I love. oak, leather, ash, tar, brine and black pepper are the dominant flavours
Was für eine Bombe! Hier passt alles, Torf, Rauch und Alkoholgehalt.
power house without knocking your taste buds out of commission. very complex. Loved it!
campfires burning, draw nearer.
one of the best whiskeys I've purchased. very full flavor. lots of flavor notes
Very Smoked. Armonic.
Drinking Corryvreckan and Uegeadail back to back is an enlightening experience. Corry matured in French oak casks and burgandy casks while Oogie in sherry and bourbon casks. Corry is sweeter and pepperier while Oogie has dark, dry fruit notes. Everything is riding on Ardbeg BBQ. fire pit which does not overwhelm complexity.
One of the most intense but enjoyable whisky's I've had so far. Smokey, but not overwhelming, with some subtle fruit notes to balance it out
precious..smoked, very smoked!!!
smoky like salmiac
stark rauchig, kräftig, verträgt gut Wasser
powerful and peppery
Beautiful! Strong flavours, smoke initially, then some toffee
Smoke, with some toffee
strong but very tasty
Intense smoke, very heavily peated.
compared to the 10 years old it's just more of the same. Not really worth the higher Price.
mächtiger, wilder ardbeg. torfig(aber nicht unbedingt zu rauchig) kraftvoll, braucht zeit zum atmen um sich ganz zu entfalten... sehr schön
After Perpetuum, An Oa, Grooves and Kelpie, Ardbeg wasnt my first choice for a new whisky. But I still tried Corryvreckan with a friend and was most pleasantly surprised. This one is worth its price. Although as Uigeadail is better imo Id still go with that one. Corryvreckan is very intense. Lots of pepper and peat in addition to the distilery character. Although I favor Uigeadail I sincerely hope I get to taste Corryvreckan again someday.
Nose: peated, vanilla, spirits,
Body: stinging on the tongue, closed before adding a little water, liquice (Pernod), salty,
Finish: smoke, warming, squeeze the mouth.
great smoke and peat flavour. wonderful finish.
Only for the bravest. It's so powerful and strong but very well balanced at the same time. We'll definitely buy again
Best Whisky I ever had. Very peaty but I love that
Definitely not for everyone. It's like Arbeg 10yo on steroids. If you enjoy a lot of peat and smoke, you're going to love Corryvreckan
Very smokey and peated therefore a very string taste to start with, the anise finish is pretty strong (too much for me). Overall a very strong but sophisticate whisky
Quite an unexpected development, the nose didn't really hint at the palate, the finish comes sudden and strong. Excellent at each stage and certainly memorable.
Peat with a herbal quality, almost piney. Buttery.
Syrupy mouthfeel, sweet fruit, citrus, orange peels. Creamy with warming spices. Quite unique and not at all expected after the nose.
Sudden & strong. Smoke, chili, meaty.
Lekker in winter
Dizzying aromas of peat, smoke and white fruit in the background. Rich taste of honey, nuts, apple syrup and white fruit. All this is intermingled in a complex picture. Despite the high alcohol it is very delicate on the palate, but a teaspoonful of water won't hurt. Very good Islay.
Peat, smoke, white fruit
Honey, nuts, apple syrup, white fruit
Sea buckthorn berries, grapes, slightly alcoholic
Peaty, black pepper, a little cumin
good just a little too much burn
peppery, warm, salty
Wonderful, interesting, challenging, dark and sweet and wild!
Sweet vanilla, orange marmelade, aniseed, ginger, eucalyptus, smoked ham. Dark but fresh. With water comes a nutty note and much dark red fruit.
Espresso, nuts, proper and orange marmelade. Some oily shoe polish, but also little bit metallic, but it fits in. The peat tastes like sucking on a smoked sausage.
85% cocoa chocolate, liquorice and a dry, dusty aftertaste.
Outstanding! Smoked meat, brine, wet socks and nice alcohol heat. Well balanced and complex.
great tasting peated whiskey that is full on (in a good way) and with an aftertaste that reminds you of chewing charcoal ( in a good way). this whiskey is one you should sit on for ages just sipping away at it.
Intensely smooth, smoky, and peaty. Pepper, salt, and charred steak behind the peat. A charred smoked grenade explodes in your mouth that dissapates into salty, smoky, peppery and malty flavors. Very complex and unique. Wonderful finish that leaves some unexpected salty sweetness on the palate. The finish is strong with this one!
Char, smoke, peat, pepper
salt, malt, peat, char, smoke
smooth, inviting and slightly sweet.
peppery, warm, salty, balanced, slight sweetness
medium peat, seaweed salty hint. ends with dark chocolate, black cherry and coffee.
smoke and peat definitely there, not quite as powerful than other ardbegs. sweet vanilla present there too behind the smoke.
good body with a fairly smooth mouth-feel. friendly punch of smoke and peat married with sweet vanilla with a touch of salt. ending with dark chocolate and espresso.
lasting peat and chocolate
oh my God this is amazing
Quite gentle, but peaty with hints of liquorice
Geweldige smaak explosie van turf rook. Met nog wel een mooie zoete smaak er tissue
Oooh wat is dat. Sterke turf heerlijk.
A rush of peat and force up front, then dark chocolate, seaweed and fruits. Amazing.
nose is beef brisket, campfire smoke, blood orange, sour pineapple. initially some tropical fruit into peat - never too sweet and never far from Ardbeg's signature peat. also some ribs in there, which I think is cool. thick mouth feel. relatively long finish, smoke. I didn't get any burn from the high abv. a must have for lovers of strong flavors
White Pepper, Star Anise, Cherry, Smoke, Coffee
Extremely peaty and lots of flavors. Not for everyone but really interesting. I enjoy having a drink at the end of the meal.
a real peatpunch in the face. sweet and peppery aftertaste. verrrry good!!
Amazing Islay malt with a great punch of peat and a refreshing sea salty touch that I had not experienced before.
my favorite !
Very peaty peppery and crisp seaweed. Long finish black coffee, chocolate and cherries. Another reason I have a spare bottle.
Tremendous example of the Islay whiskys. Rich, peaty smokiness, combined with the saltiness of ocean spray make for a bracing dram!
Smoked, peppery fruit (citrus, pineapple) in a bowl of salty sea water. A salty, bittersweet and peppery punch in your face.
Smoke, peat and yellow fruit. Orange peel, smoked raisins, butter, pineapple and a splash of salty sea water.
Salty, smoky and a little greasy. Bitter fruit (pineapple, citrus, green apple), ash, pepper and fresh wood.
Long and salty, with roasted coffee, bacon and tobacco, but also notes of peaches and oranges.
Full-bodied smokey and peaty islay single malt with a nice smokey aftertaste. More smokey and rich on the mouth than Ardbegs Ugeadail.
Tourbe fumée,poivre,iode.Bien equilibré,top!
Une belle réussite. très tourbé.
