Ardbeg Corryvreckan Single Malt Scotch

Tasting Notes Surprisingly sweet, with an underlying fistful of smokiness and spicy fruit. One of the most elegant expressions of Ardbeg

Worth Knowing Named after the world’s second largest whirlpool, which lies between the islands of Islay and Jura off the west coast of Scotland, Corryvreckan is the result of malt whiskies that have been aging in French oak since 1999 in the distillery’s dark, dank, and musty warehouses. At 114.2 proof, this non-chill-filtered, cask- strength whisky deserves a wee splash of water or at least a few ice cubes to tone it down.
