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
