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.Tasting Notes (1)

Producer's Tasting Notes
Heady, intense and powerful. A collision of waxy dark chocolate, warm blackcurrants and muscovado sugar pulls you under its spell with a burst of plump cherries and earthy pine needles leaping from its depths. Salty seasoning brings a briny character with tangy crisp seaweed and smoky bacon swirling on the surface with hints of sweet vanilla, spicy cloves and blueberries.
Torrents of taste well up on the palate; deep, peppery and chewy, bombarding the tongue with its intense tastes and textures. The first plunge brings forth chewy peppered steak soaked in pepper sauce with the tang of crispy seaweed. As you descend deeper, encounter a mouthful of black tarry espresso coffee that coats the palate with rich melted dark fruits (blackcurrants, blueberries and cherries) and bitter almonds. As the taste soaks in deeper, star anise and hickory dry out the palate before a surprise of chalky effervescent violets fizz to the surface.
Long, deep and remaining powerful into the finish with black tarry coffee, chocolate-coated cherries and hot pepper sauce, the lingering memories of your mysterious and daring journey into Corryvreckan.

The bottle I bought must be faulty - because the level keeps dropping at an incredible rate! Seriously though - it's a sign that I find it difficult to bypass this bottle when I feel like a wee dram. Deeply smoky, a lovely lingering drink, which I prefer without water. The glass even smells wonderful the following morning. 5 star rating.
Awesome.Very smoky very peaty, intense with a long finish and a slight sweetness.
This is the Islay whisky that you must keep in stock. A great balance of flavour, sweet rich and savoury. Very approachable despite the high abv. take it with or without water
Very strong but tasty.
This is by far quite possibly the best dram I have ever had. Very much worth it’s price. Fruity, smokey, and makes the mouth absolutely water.
