Craigellachie 17 Year Old Bottling Note

It used to be a rather rare sight to see an official bottling of Craigellachie single malt. Well after years of waiting, in 2014, four turned up all at once! The 17 year old expression really shows off the meatiness of this Speysider's spirit - top stuff.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Apple crumble, melon and raisins. Honey'd 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.

Craigellachie 17 Year Old Reviews

Catch it if you can

Very impressed, just supped 2 sample bottles, thinking of purchasing a full bottle.

Excellent

Craigellachie really is an underrated distillery. The 17 is another fantastic dram. Different from the 13, more rich and fruit and with less sulphur. Needs time to breath like any good whisky. Prices seem to be dropping too. 'Where positive anticipation crumbles' what a strange review, tasting notes seem to be from a different whisky

find it and buy it

Recommended to me by MoM. Absolutely delighted with this- the perfect mixture of toffee sweet intensity and mineral complexity that I like. Loads going on in this dram. Highly recommended. (for ref. I also love Springbank, HP and Arran, among others)

Balance whisky

A little of smoke and malty. After 5 mins the melon and floral flavor come out (I can imagine this aroma is given by the aromatic compound called Beta Damascone).
Taste waxy and smoky. A little of hay and grass on the finish.

Where positive anticipation crumbles

Nose: Gingerbread nose alongside the bourbon support.

Palate: Pleasant mature sherry that risks sourness and that's it. There is a loft unused wood odour.

Nose: A minor tail.

Character and warmth but a little sharp for me

This whisky has character and warmth, but for me it had just a little too much sharpness in taste; my partner said she definitely liked this malt.

Perfection

Incredible whisky. Waxy finish coats the mouth while you get the glorious warm feeling through your chest. Would recommend to anyone and everyone.

Stunning balance, glorious whisky

This is a superb dram, and the balance is stunning. I am not a fan of the Craigellachie character overall, as it sometimes leans too much into sulfur, but here it matters not. The mixture of bourbon and sherry casks, plus ageing, is masterful. Fruits and ginger and warming spices, that is the story throughout, from nose to finish. This whisky can stand up too many strong contenders. Praiseworthy, bare hints of ancient wood, and heaps of spirit and cask flavor, all in the right balance. I am only one person but this blows away the 13 year expression; they are not even comparable.

Lovely, just lovely

My usual choice is smokey whisky, this does not even register in the smoke, but in nose, palate and finish it is one of the best ones i have tasted in years.

The nose made me think of white wine, apple cider the flavor is a rich mixture of sweet flavors. It is not a cheap bottle, but i will have to track one down.
