Description

Craigellachie distillery was established in 1891 in Banffshire, near the village of Craigellachie in Speyside, Scotland. Craigellachie can be translated from Gaelic as “rocky hill”. The majority of the whisky it produces is used in blended Scotch whiskies, such as Dewars.

Craigellachie 17 is matured in a mixture of ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks. The bourbon casks bring vanilla, toffee and fudge notes to the fore, and the sherry casks provide richness and complexity.

Nose: Apple crumble, melon and raisins. Honey barley, a little hint of smoke and vanilla ice-cream.

Palate: It opens very sweet with pineapple and custard creams, though the meatiness soon shines through. More smoke on the palate than the nose, with a touch of clove and oak.

Finish: Waxy and smoky on the finish.
