Craigellachie 13 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whiskey 750mL
Bonfire night: aromas of oozing toasted marshmallows, roasted pineapple and baked apples studded with cloves, with the tang of cordite lingering in the background.
Craigellachie sits firm in the heart of speyside, flat bang in the middle of scotch territory. It obstinately stands alone on a rock overlooking the confluence of the rivers fiddich and spey. But rid your mind of that typical ‘speyside’ flavour, for craigellachie rebels against this.
It consciously makes no concessions to modern-day house rules. Craigellachie is an unapologetic and unique whisky, robust and muscular with a hint of pineapple. The distillery was built in 1891, when the great alfred barnard described our whisky as 'a style seldom met', and we've been old fashioned - in style and flavour - ever since.
