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.
Like the whirlpool itself, Corryvreckan is not for the faint-hearted!
|Distillery: Swirl the glass for torrents of tarry creosote. A collision of dark chocolate, blackcurrants and muscovado is followed by a burst o cherries and pine needles. With water cayenne peppered steak surfaces with cloves and blueberries. A heady mix of treacle, menthol and chilli sauce follows.|
|Distillery: The first plunge is deep, peppery and chewy with crispy seaweed. Descend deeper and a mouthful of espresso coffee coats the palate with rich melted dark fruits and star anise.|
|Distillery: Long, deep and powerful into the finish, with black coffee, chocolate coated cherries and hot pepper sauce.|
