Corry is a bit of a different beast from Oogy. It doesn't have the sherry and is a little more of a blunt instrument, big peat and brine and all that.The first time I drank Corryvreckan was during a hurricane near the end of October, it was about 40F out and blasting rain with a bit of snow.

What was the upcharge for the overdying?
They do offer thin MOP buttons for no extra charge.
Did a little riff on a Hemingway daiquiri tonight. 2oz white rum (Flor de Cana), 1 oz Combier Creme de Pamplemousse (grapefruit for the non-Francophiles), and 3/4 oz lime juice. Came out nicely, very clean note of grapefruit and just enough sweetness without added sugar.
