Ardbeg Corryvreckan is named after the sucking, dark force the perilous vortex between the Hebridean islands of Islay and Jura. Corryvreckan is Europe's largest and the world's second-largest one vortex and is just as' Big & Untamed "as the spirit of Ardbeg. The heart of Corryvreckan's character comes from Ardbeg spirit that slowly aged in French oak barrels until whiskey, rather than in American oak.

Bottled at 57.1% ABV without cold filtering.

Colour: Deep amber

Fragrance: Intense and powerful. Initially the deep and wild force of Corryvreckan draws full attention. Tar and linseed oil merge with waxy dark chocolate, hot blackcurrant, dark sugar and pine needles. Water salty seasoning bring the character of spicy seaweed and smoked bacon, balanced by a hint of vanilla, cloves and blueberries. It ends with an explosion of menthol, treacle and chilli.

Taste: Deep and intense flavors and textures. Peppered meat, crispy seaweed and black tarry espresso rapid succession. Melted dark fruits and bitter almonds cover the palate after surprising violets come forward.

Finish: Long, deep and lasting strong finish with black tarry coffee, chocolate-covered cherries and hot pepper sauce.

Nose: Very intense smoke, smoke fried bacon with tar and pine trees. This dram is playing with heavy peat!

Taste: Nicely salty and smoky, richly peat. Some oil, spices and medicinal appeal.

Finish: Peat and smoke collide with small oil drops mixed in there as well.

Balance: Like having a camp fire barbeque in whisky heaven.

Peat smoke, smoked bacon, baked bananas, massive with tar, grass, is it wet grass or hay? Both I believe. Some dry leather and fresh tobacco is in the background. Yeah, definitely some butter scotch as well.

Peat smoke and sugar, burnt sugar, fried bananas and syrup, smoky sweetness, really complex. Bacon again, salty caramelized bacon and black pepper.

It's really long, THIS IS A FINISH! Behind the peat smoke there is a distinct fruitiness that returns right back on the palate. Some chili pepper and brine.

Good stuff! No doubt! One of the best Ardbegs' out there.

Peat, vanilla, orange, lemon and gingerbread.

Peat, pepper, citrus, gingerbread and dark chocolate.

Peat, pepper, orange, gingerbread and dark chocolate.

Still a classic in the peated segment. It's more peppery than the Uigeadail, plus more bourbon influence. I actually like this one better.
