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 Whiskey.

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.

Sublime. Charred wood, dark chocolate and all that is good in a long walk through a dark pine forest.

The smoke and the peat.

It is one of the best tasting whiskeys I have ever tasted. I particularly like it straight up with no ice.

Wow!

Excellent Ardbeg. Complex, less peaty than the standard 10y old, but very much Ardbeg nevertheless. Could have this every day!
