Craigellachie 17YO DL OP
A single cask release of Craigellachie single malt Scotch whisky, distilled in 1995, which was before the distillery was sold to Bacardi in 1998. A piece of history, for sure! It spent 17 years maturing in a sherry cask before being cracked open and bottled by Douglas Laing for their Old Particular range.
Sweet, fruity, clean sherry. No hints of cask defects, such as sulphur. Must have been a re-fill sherry cask, and I'm glad for it. Lovely balance.
