Craigellachie 17 Year Old

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.

Reviews for Craigellachie 17 Year Old
Cirtussy fruit bomb!
Wow this is the best whisky I've had for some time, even those similarly priced. It's so bright, cirtussy and vibrant. Also very oily mouth feel. I get apples, cut grass, jasmine, lillies, and lemmon drizzle cake. What a combo! Strange! As often happens on first opening, it was OK, and I opened a bottle of 30 quid Hinch irish that seemed better, but the next day I went back and was blown away. Shame its sold out!

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.
