All about making whisky
This Craigellachie is far more mature in comparison to its brother, four years its junior. Assertive right from the start, it fully expresses its naturally fruity character before developing more medicinal and floral tones. It is interesting to note that although the malted barley is pervasive throughout it is also quite altruistic in that it contents itself to playing the role of simply enhancing the aromatic and gustatory palate.
Profile: lively, powerful. Honey and exotic fruit. Malty, spicy, floral and medicinal (aromatic plants). Milky (almond, coconut). Woody (oak) and chocolatey finish.
Taken over by John Dewars & Sons (Bacardi) in 1998, Craigellachie has a highly exclusive following and was founded in 1891 by a very interesting character indeed: Peter Mackie. The creator of the international commercial success, the White Horse blend, Peter was one of the five Barons of the whisky industry, one of the famous “Big Five”. His uncle, from whom he would later inherit, was none other than James Logan Mackie, the owner of the Lagavulin distillery on the Isle of Islay.
