I have been told that the Corryvreckan is a vatting of 12 Y.O first fill bourbon casks with very young fresh French oak casks.
If anyone else can give any more details please do.
I tried it at Whisky Fringe (what a scrum when they opened it) and I was rather underwhelmed, mind you it was only a small sample. It certainly has some red-wine influence as Nick says and not to my tastes.
The Ren was far better for me but I'm so glad I stocked up on Oogy when it was cheaper and contained older casks.
I'am sure the Oogling contained even younger whisky than the Corryvreckan...I believe it had some very young bourbon hogsheads and a 4 year old sherry butt.
Then there's the Committee Very Young.
One of my favourite Ardbegs ever was the first ever Committee bottle..the sherry butt # 2394 a single cask 23 y.o released in 2000 at £150....happy days !
