What they say:

Distilled 26th February 2004, this Craigellachie single malt was bottled over 12 years later on 10th August 2016 with 233 bottles produced from a single cask.


Sweet spices and black pepper. Meaty with hints of barley malt and cocoa butter. A little cooked fruit and toffee.


Sweet, spiced palate with vanilla to the fore. Hints of dark chocolate, passion fruit, oats and cinnamon.


Cinnamon and black pepper on a medium-long finish.

What I say:

Dram#3 from The Dram Team Incredible Indies tasting set was this 12 year old Craigellachie.


Eiswein rich copper gold (7/20), large droplet tears and thick legs


Egg custard, sulphur, brass pennies, toffee and heather honey, grassy, spicy allspice and black pepper


Fruity raisin, fig & plum, spicy Szechuan pepper, apple strudel, toffee, leather, clove, allspice, cinnamon


Long, spiced fruit punch


A real feisty dram full of Christmas spiced fruit punch on the palate but more classic spirit character on the nose

Score: 85/100

Don’t take my word for it:
