What's in a name? Craigellachie 1997 (bottled 2013) - Connoisseurs Choice (Gordon & Macphail) whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Craigellachie 1997 (bottled 2013) - Connoisseurs Choice (Gordon & Macphail) whiskey, rather than whisky.
Nose: Exotic notes of coconut and kiwi. Vanilla and toasty, smoky malt later on.
Palate: Warming notes of chilli spice, sweet fruit jams and tobacco.
Finish: A long finish.
Overall: Very well balanced throughout.
