Notes from the Distillery:

Craigellachie is the rock at the heart of Speyside, yet is anything but your typical 'Speyside' whisky. Considered old fashioned even in 1891, its muscular robustness comes from the traditional worm tub condensers that bestow extra flavour. It's this full, yet aromatic, character that has made Craigellachie a prized malt since the late 19th century and highly-awarded in the modern age. 

Crafted from a rarer blend of casks, Craigellachie 17 is a classic example of our unapologetic and distinct Whisky style, smooth and mellow in flavour with rich silky notes of exotic fruits.

DISTILLERY CHARACTER: Craigellachie is an unapologetic and distinct whisky, robust and muscular in flavour with a hint of pineapple.

CASK TYPE: Initially matured in a mixture of ex-Bourbon and ex-Sherry casks. 50% of the 'blend' is then finished in first-fill Sherry casks, the rest in first-fill Bourbon.

A STEADFAST DRAM: All Craigellachie expressions are non-chill filtered, contain no caramel coloring and are bottled at 46% ABV.

"Sweet marmalade with layers of orchard fruits and meaty nuances. Freshly stewed apples and pears with a complexity of peat smoke richness and a full body. Fruit-rich, thick and weighty with sensational integration."

"Medium amber, with chocolate, toffee, dried fruit aromas. Very fruity on the palate, with green apple, pear, and kiwi. The nutty undertones are still present, but it’s more Brazil nut than peanut, with a thinner mouthfeel and dry finish that ends on nutty cereal." - The Whiskey Wash

"Fruity summer in a glass." -
