There are some timeless single malts which obstinately refuse to age. As youthful as ever, this 45-year-old Craigellachie bottled by Gordon & MacPhail for La Maison du Whisky is a perfect example. Rich, firm, captivating, lofty: such adjectives, all of which apply, give an idea of the beauty and complexity of its aroma and flavour palette. Earthy, noble and balanced could also be used to describe its very Speyside character.

Profile: captivating nose, a very refined expression, with exceptional freshness. Fruit, flowers, precious wood and a touch of exoticism precede a very lively palate, characterised by a delicate minerality. The finish is packed with currants, lime blossom and black fruit.

Description

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : burnished gold with coppery, orangey glints.
  • Nose : rich, entrancing. Characterized by a rare refinement and exceptional freshness, the initial nose is fruity (banana, apricot), floral (broom, mimosa), spiced (ginger, nutmeg) and roasted (coffee, tobacco) with hints of praline. It evolves energetically with notes of precious wood, beeswax, and even more exotic aromas (mango, passion fruit). The balance is perfect, and the length extraordinary. The crescendo comes with orange zest and heather honey.
  • Palate : firm, lofty. With the same fervour as the nose, the palate shows great vitality and self-confidence. There is a parade of jammy fruit: oranges, Mirabelle plums, yellow peaches, mangoes and figs. In the mid-palate, the flavours are characterised by firmness and minerality. Spices, aromatic plants, notes of earth and slate give it the perfect foundation to resist the passing years.
  • Overall : balsamic, empyreumatic. Evoking a crème brûlée, it exudes essences of rosemary and lime blossom. The fruit is dehydrated and becomes dried (currants, dates). The retro-nasal olfaction is very unusual, offering us wonderful great baskets of black fruit (blackberry, blueberry). The empty glass gives an impression of tremendous firmness and minerality.
The brand

The brand

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.

Merchant

This independent bottler is without a doubt one of the most highly acclaimed in Scotland. It stands out, not for its age (though it is the oldest independent bottler in Scotland), but for its complete mastery of cask ageing. Gordon & MacPhail is the only bottler to have its own casks - carefully chosen for the purpose - filled by the distilleries themselves, instead of simply buying the ones suggested to them by the latter. This allows it to determine, in advance and with great precision, exactly how many years a whisky will need to reach ideal maturation.

The line

A new Gordon & MacPhail range, Exclusive was created to bring together a small number of blends, bottled without dilution from single casks, and intended to be sold exclusively through Gordon & MacPhail’s shop in Elgin. La Maison du Whisky was lucky enough to have access to some of these rare, highly-prized bottlings, including the very first release of a 1984 Caol Ila to available outside of Scotland.
