Whisky Reviews for Ardbeg Corryvreckan

14 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.09 points

  1. hs305 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    [November, 2011]  I had this dram during a community society tasting near Bonn.In
    my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
    - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 87,5.  I took no further notes as I knew it before.

  2. KayMeertens scored this whisky 89 points Specialist

    Still a classic in the peated segment. It's more peppery than the Uigeadail, plus a clear bourbon influence. I actually like this one a bit better even though the Uigeadail tends to get higher scores.
    • Nose
      Peat, vanilla, orange, lemon, gingerbread, dough and clove.
    • Taste
      Peat, pepper, citrus, gingerbread and dark chocolate.
    • Finish
      Peat, pepper, orange, gingerbread, dark chocolate and burnt wood.

  4. Ikkakumon scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Excellent Ardbeg.
    • Nose
      Tourbe, fumée, petites touches de caramel et de fruits jaunes, noisette, sel, quelques épices.
    • Taste
      Tourbe bouillonnante, un peu de fruit, sel marin, poivre, quelques notes boisées.

      Après dilution: le fruité et le sel sont plus présents, mais la tourbe reprend rapidement le dessus.
    • Finish
      Très longue sur la fumée de tourbe

  7. spatti did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    • Nose
      In the nose the smoke and the alcohol prevail. Charred wood as an essential association, with delicate caramelized notes. Fairly dry, completely salt-free, even delicate ashy notes.
    • Taste
      The palate is a bit rounder, smoke supported by wood, towards the finish it even moves to an appeal of mustardseed with honey. The body is one of the heavier ones.
    • Finish
      In the finish, the mustard comes through fully, to smoky notes and Ananastöne. Especially the smoke is persistent.

  8. Nethar did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Islay, peat, smoke waiting inside glass, some fruit sweetness, chocolate, little bit of salt
    • Taste
      both oily and woody, peppery, tons of smoke
    • Finish
      extremely long Ardbeg style, lot of smoke

  9. mmaclean scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    At first it took me some time to come around to the Peat side of scotch.

    This version was highly recommended and since then, it has been harder

    to come by. I have appreciated it now that I have learned that you need

    to savor the flavor on this one for a good two three minutes to get the

    full span. If you were to just pour and sip and drink down like it was

    juice, you would lose so much of the work that went into this beauty,

    enjoy if you can find it.

  10. QuarterCentury scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    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.
