Ardbeg Corryvreckan Bottling Note

Powerfully peaty and immensely satisfying, Ardbeg's Corryvreckan is what happens when the distillery of Islay's Kildalton Coast aims to make a whisky with a particularly medicinal style than its usual expressions. Aptly named after a nearby whirlpool, Corryvreckan is an intense dram that we simply love.

Ardbeg Corryvreckan Reviews


Ardbeg, more known in recent years for special NAS releases just for the novelty of them (&$) still produces a big winner here in the Corryvreckan as part of its core line-up along with the Ten & "Oogy" (Uigeadail).
Corryvreckan boasts sweet fruity & smoky notes with pleasing salty/earthy components for an enjoyably well-balanced offering that honors the tradition of Islay whisky.

To overpowering alcohol-wise for me

Too strong and not at all smooth. Found the salty finish quite interesting as were many of the various flavours but for close to £70 it was disappointing personally. I couldn’t drink more than a dram in a sitting but glad I gave it a go!

Ardbeg quality all the way

Had this on my bucket list for so long. The voltage is pretty intense but still so smooth. Hard to make sense which one is better, this or Uigeadail. Both are just astonishing drams. Corryvreckan is what you expect from Ardbeg. Not for beginners but for long time Ardbeg lovers.... This is a must!!

Good, not great

Lacks the balance, complexity and development of Oogy, which is still the flagship bottling from this distillery, IMHO.

The Ultimate

I never very much liked the most peated of the Islay malts but this one turned out to be one of the best drams I have ever tasted. Like in the best smoked foods, the tarry taste is beautifully embedded in a complex matrix of something divine, here dried fruit, freshly baked buttered bread and ocean, which perfectly balances it. I find it even more satisfying than Uigeadail. Very easy to get totally drunk on unintentionally.

Not found anything to beat this yet.

Bought as a present for my husband. It is his favourite of the Ardbeg whiskies I also got him a bottle of Uigeadail. Corryvreckan is still his number 1!

Far too strong. I'm not a fan of adding water as it changes the viscosity of the liquid. I find it unpalatable and a waste of £70odd

This is really nice.

Don't understand some of the reviews here. It's all there, smoke, peat, pepper, fruit, TCP, salt, some sweetness. Really enjoyable dram, like it a lot.

The best easily-available whisky

I cannot believe the reviews here. I've had some of the most exclusive, best bottlings of whisky that have ever existed, Port Ellen 73, Rosebank, Milton Duff 23yo, Brora 21, Clynelish, St Magdalene, and i think that Corry is the best easily-available, commercially priced whisky that you can buy today. Honestly nothing is going to beat a Port Ellen, but this comes pretty darn close, AND costing 1/30th of the price.
I find Uigeadail just as valid, but prefer the salty, spicy tones of Corryvreckan.

Not what it used to be

I’m not sure when I first tried Corryvrekan, But it was sometime between 2010 in 2015. It was a revelation - Ardbeg peat and smoke with that delicious dark fruit from whatever they are aging the product in. But my most recent bottles are just not the same. The dark fruit now is much more subtle and a bit off. This used to be my favorite scotch, but now I do not think I will buy it again until I hear that it’s returned to its former glory.
