Ardbeg Corryvreckan Description

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 Ardbeg dram. Like the whirlpool itself, Corryvreckan is not for the faint-hearted!

Intense and powerful, with lots of salt and tar, but also with an appealing dark chocolate sweetness and rich red fruits and muscovado sugar. Lots of pepper on the palate, and a mouthful of black tarry espresso balanced by soft, rich fruits. A long, powerful finish with black coffee, chocolate coated cherries and hot pepper sauce.

Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2018 category winner for non-age statement Single Malt Scotch.

Knowledge Bar

There have been no floor maltings at Ardbeg since 1977, so all the malt that is used in the production of Ardbeg comes from the maltings in Port Ellen. Once the malt arrives at the distillery it is stored in malt bins for a few days before being crushed into a substance called grist in a malt mill.

There are 2 traditional brands of malt mill, Porteous and (more unusually) Boby. The mill at Ardbeg is a Boby mill.
