Craigellachie 13yr. Single Malt Scotch

Item # 32542 750mL

Benefiting from the younger age statement compared to the 17 and 23, the 13-year Craigellachie has retained so much of that unmistakable distillery character that is so highly sought after. Old school to the bone, this dram is full of sweet malt, pure honey, apricots, and a touch of smoke. So happy to finally have single malt on the shelf from this old producer that is still going strong.

Staff Pick Notes

The Craigellachie distillery was built in 1891 by famed architect Alexander Edwards and Sir Peter Mackie, best known for bringing the Islay distillery 'Lagavulin' to prominence. For many decades you have been drinking this spirit in some of the most established blended Scotch whiskies on the market. But since 2004, Craigellachie has released its finest single malt offerings under estate label. A broad shouldered whisky with an abundance of orchard fruits and spice. More notable than any subtle 'smoke' present, I savor the distinctive, slightly salty Sherry cask character that lasts throughout the sip. As it is non-chill filtered and presented with no added color, the texture is round, a bit oily, and unhindered.

Scotland

History:Distillation was brought to Scotland from Ireland by missionary monks in the 6th century. In 1644, the first taxes were imposed on Scottish distillers by England, with the result that most of the nation’s whisky was soon distilled illicitly. With the Parliament’s passing of the “Excise Act” in 1824, licensing fees for distilleries were much cheaper.
