Lying in the heart of Speyside, Craigellachie is one of the
great classic single malt producers. Flowing from its short
stills is a robust and lively spirit. We matured this spirit in
a large oak cask (a butt) then put it into a freshly emptied
cask that previously held Demerara rum from Guyana.
Nose: earthy, toasted oats, honey
Palate: smoky cereals, oily, apple, caramel
Finish: long, warming soft molasses
The Art of Maturation when practised
whiskies is especially rewarding. Developing complex
flavours whilst taming a boisterous spirit is a challenge
our Coleburn Distillery Warehouse Team relishes.
