Malt Advocate's Single Malt of the Year for 2010.
The Ardbeg distillery is arguably one of the greatest distilleries on Earth. It produces one of the most peaty expressions available, they themselves claim they produce the peatiest Islay Whisky.
Started in the early 18th century on the south coast of the isle of Islay, Argyll and Bute, Scotland, it is now owned by Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy. During the years it was closed and reopened several times, as the majority of other distilleries in Scotland, and changed owners many times; however it has never lost the genuine devotion of producing The Ultimate Islay Malt.
One of their finest expressions is the Ardbeg Corryvreckan. This elusive Scotch Whisky was named the Top Whisky of the year 2010 by Whisky Advocate. The Corryvreckan is named after the famous whirlpool that lies to the north of Islay, where only the bravest souls dare to venture. It is bottled at cask strength of 57.1% ABV.
