Tasting Notes

A spirit of tremendous fortitude with real maturity and the old school flavor profile we've come to expect from Craigellachie but which is in rare supply from most other producers these days. There is a bit of everything here with sweet, spice and smoky notes that weave in and out, each taking a moment in the spotlight to show you what we've been waiting for these past 17 years. It has clearly been worth it.

It's rich yet elegant with notes of dried fruit, caramel, crushed leaves and dark chocolate with a slightly more malty/nutty finish that goes on and on and on.
