Craigellachie 17 Year Old
One of the first releases in the Last Great Malt's of Scotland range, the Craigellachie 17 year old. Craigellachie has long been a malt set aside mostly for blending apart from the odd independent bottling and the illusive Flora and Fauna bottling. Now allowed to shine in its own light, Craigellachie is shown to be a chunky, spicy single malt full of character. A great addition to the whisky world and to any whisky shelf.
A pleasantly surprising Speyside. The nose has a touch of wood smoke, combined with sweet Cranachan. The palate is very complex with sweet tropical fruits to start, that slowly develops into a savoury smoke, with a spicy bite at the end. The finish sticks to your mouth with wood smoke.
