Modernist Whisky Business: Ardbeg Corryvreckan vs. 10yr

Ardbeg Corryvreckan - Takes its name from the famous whirlpool that lies to the north of Islay, where only the bravest souls dare to venture. Swirling aromas and torrents of deep, peaty, peppery taste lurk beneath the surface of this beautifully balanced dram. Like the whirlpool itself, Corryvreckan is not for the faint-hearted! Awarded The Worldā€™s Best Single Malt in 2010 by the World Whiskies Awards. Non chill-filtered at 57.1% ABV.

Ardbeg 10 yr - Ardbeg Ten Years Old is revered around the world as the peatiest, smokiest, most complex single malt of them all. Yet it does not flaunt the peat; rather it gives way to the natural sweetness of the malt to produce a whisky of perfect balance. Named World Whisky of the Year in 2008. Non chill-filtered with a strength of 46% ABV.

Greg Osuri - CEO at OvrCLK

OvrCLK Labs develops protocols, tools, and infrastructure to make foundational elements of the internet decentralized, reliable and, simple. We believe infrastructure should be self-healing, tolerant to erosions and natural disasters. Faults are inevitable. Instead of just focussing on reducing failures, we believe infrastructure should recover quickly. We think the resilience can be achieved with clean decoupling of build time and runtime assets of the application. We believe infrastructure should be a distributed state machine ā€” architecturally decentralized, logically centralized ā€” and maintain several copies of the state spread throughout the globe. We believe the tools that run the internet should be simple, easy and accessible for developers.
