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.
Producer
Ardbeg has been voted the best Whisky in the world; 3 years in a row. And in the world of Ardbeg, peat is important. For it is this soggy, unassuming matter which gives Ardbeg its famous flavour. Ardbeg is the PEATIEST and SMOKIEST of all the Islay malts, yet has a fruity floral sweetness and complexity to the spirit.

Ultimate Beverage Challenge 94 points - Powerful yet elegant and precise, this Islay single malt is a classic. Liquid smoke seamlessly intertwines with notes of prunes, dried orange peel and burned sugar, leading into a complex, never-ending finish. - 2019 Ultimate Spirits Challenge (Excellent, Highly Recommended) (Tried & True Award)  (Apr 2019)

UBC Finalist 100 points - Part of the permanent Ardbeg range since 2008, Corryvreckan is created from a blend of standard Ardbeg and Ardbeg aged in virgin French Limousin oak casks. Smoky bacon and seaweed, plus dark berries, prickly spices, walnuts, lemon, and sweet peat on the nose. Sweet and savory on the palate, with more lively spice, woodsmoke, phenols, and licorice. The finish is lengthy, with peat, sea salt, pepper, and black coffee. Editors’ Choice Reviewed by: Gavin Smith (Fall 2018) (Oct 2018)
