The mean gravelly soils and invigorating climes of Mount Barker of the Australian southwest, were identified during the 1960s by the world's leading viticulturalists, as a place uncannily similar to the great terroirs and clime of Bordeaux. The pioneering vines of Forest Hill were the first ever planted here, sired from rootstock of ancient Houghton clones, inaugurally vintaged by the illustrious Jack Mann in 1972. The Cabernet and Riesling of Forest Hill were promptly distinguished by multiple trophy victories and praised by gentleman James Halliday as the most remarkable wines to come out of the Australian west. Forest Hill have remained a source of the most profoundly structured, intensely focused, yet softly spoken range of wines. Powerful yet disciplined Cabernet, generously proportioned Malbec, august Chardonnay and mesmerising Riesling, all representing essential drinking and salient value, for every learned west coast gourmande in the..

Ardbeg Corryvreckan Islay Malt 700ml CONFIRM AVAILABILITY

Scotch Whisky
Man the lifeboats! Here comes the second wave of this deliciously deep, powerfully peaty and wonderfully wild whisky. 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. Its briny character of crisp seaweed, sweet vanilla and rich, dark melted fruits draws you into a long deep finish. Like the whirlpool itself, Corryvreckan is not for the faint-hearted!.

Experiments initiated in 1999 have accumulated parcels of Ardbeg stock slowly maturing in French oak casks. These are at the heart of Corryvreckan's perplexing character, teasing spicy and sumptuous sweet fruity notes from the maturing whisky. A combo of French oak casks with classic Ardbeg matured in ex bourbon American oak casks to bring a unique contrast of extraordinary and unexpected tastes. Torrents of tarry coffee and waxy dark chocolate give way to sweet and sumptuous autumn fruits (blackberries and plump cherries) and overtones of peppered oak spices. Bottled at a powerful 57.1% and non chill-filtered, the taste is intense, the mouthfeel chewy. Truly a peaty paradox if ever there was one!
The deepest amber colour. Heady, intense aromas, powerful. With the first sniff, encounter the deep and turbulent force of Corryvreckan as it pulls you inwards. Swirl the glass and dip your nose into the torrents of tarry ropes, creosote and linseed oil rising from deep within the vortex. A burst of plump cherries and earthy pine needles leaping from its depths.
