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.
More from Ardbeg
Amazing and complex on it's own with or without water, my go to is to add a splash of this to cheaper Islay's (Islay journey being a great example) for a solid blend! Also makes the bottle last longer too ?
The best there is. Always a great and pleasant dram.
Ardbeg, but with a head-spinning twist. The smoke and the peat are still there, but this time they take a back seat. The palate is more fruity and complex, and you DO taste the fizzy violets on the finish as per the tasting notes. Incredible.
My absolute favourite – the single downside to this dram is the price, but it's so worth it.
Not as impressed with this as I am with the 10 year old and Ugidale. Still good but a little sweet for me.
