Don't be intimidated by this single malt's 57.1 percent ABV content, the alcohol in this whisky weaves seamlessly into its profile. On the nose, maple syrup and toasted oak aromas set a powerful tone, followed by layers of red berries and a hint of earth. Bold smoky notes finally emerge on the palate, and there they linger for an age, prolonging the finish for an eternity.
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 World's Best Single Malt in 2010 by the World Whiskies Awards.
