Craigellachie distillery sits nestled in the heart of Speyside atop a rock overlooking the confluence of two great rivers, the Fiddich and the Spey. The distillery was built by Peter Mackie and Alexander Edward in 1891 and still uses traditional worm tubs giving the resulting malt a distinctive meaty, sulphury character. Bottled at 46%.
Nose: Vanilla egg custard, a little sulphury, blossom honey sweet, sparkling apple and pear juice, crisp and fresh, a little boggy, sulphur and copper, slightly meaty, tarte aux pomme or poire pastries especially the sweet clear fruity jelly on the top.
Palate: Light and smooth, vanilla, cereal barley, blossom honey, crisp green apples, a spiced bite to it, like a light dusting of cinnamon on said apples, a little green malt.
Finish: Medium-short, sour apples balanced by sweet creamy vanilla and caramel.
