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 dram.

Powerful, muscular, well-textured, and invigorating. Even within the realm of Ardbeg, this one stands out. The more aggressive notes of coal tar, damp kiln, anise, and smoked seaweed are supported by an array of fruit (black raspberry, black cherry, plum), dark chocolate, espresso, molasses, bacon fat, kalamata olive, and warming cinnamon on the finish. Quite stunning! (Fall 2009) Reviewed by: John Hansell(Tried & True Award)- Honey color. The aromatic emphasis is not - surprisingly - on the peat but rather on the soft malt/cereal grain fragrance. Flavor profile is toasty, roasted, intensely grainy, lean, austere, incredibly complex but straightforward. Finishes dry, beany/kernel-like, zesty.
