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. A deliciously deep, powerfully peaty and wonderfully wild whisky.
As a replacement for the much-loved 1990 Airigh nam Beist Ardbeg Corryvreckan had some pretty big shoes to fill but the good news is that this is a belter winning World’s Best Single Malt Whisky at the World Whisky Awards 2010 and Best No Age Statement Scotch from Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible.
