Customer Rating
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.

Ardbeg Corryvreckan Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Aroma: 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.

    Taste: 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.

    Finish: 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.

    This tastes like an exploding sun made of peat. I pretty much exclusively avoid NAS but this is an exception that absolutely must be had. The most powerful and fun finish to a scotch I've experienced.

    A wonderful dram - smoky, smooth and peaty all at the same time. Everything an expression like this should be - it is unmistakably an Ardbeg yet with extra aroma and flavours throughout. Outstanding!

    Tried a sample of this in an airport recently and WOW! Punch in the mouth of peat and smoke.. great depth and character.. not sure it's worth the ?70 price range but definitely a great whiksy if ever on offer ???? Just a tip ** add a drop of water to really open up the flavours! The 57% alcohol will really Zap your taste buds!

    Tasted it during a whisky tasting at my wines and spirits store inMalta. Everybody was stunned with the aromas, taste and finish. From the feedback, its a man's whisky.

    Different than the other ardbed's, sweet with and almost burnt ginger bread finish. Quite nice!

    Was looking for something similar to the Laphroag 18 yr and the Ardbeg Corryvreckan far exceeds the Laphroag. I think I'm in love!

    Further down the bottle now. Each glass changes if it is left to settle. Nose Starts off dark chocolate, but with 20 minutes with cover over, sticking plaster comes through strongly. Antiseptic, o-cresol phenolic compound suggesting high initial combustion temperature of the peat. Pepper also appears if left a little longer. These flavours alternate and fade with each visit. Palate is oily, chocolate, antiseptic and briney. A little French wine at the end. Finish is cigar smoke, very oily, peat smoke. Got a feeling that each glass of AC will seem different from the previous one. A phenomenon of a peated malt. Very multilayered. Peat and Rich. Full bodied.
