CRAIGELLACHIE 19 ans 2nd Fill Sherry Butt 56,7%

Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Speyside, 70cl, Ref: 56545

Quantity limited to 3 bottle(s) by client.

Located in the very heart of Speyside in the village of the same name, the Craigellachie distillery still uses copper coils (worm tubes) to cool its distillate. Known for its richness and maturity, the distillery’s single malt is above all a favourite with John Dewar’s master blenders. This particularly harmonious bottling undeniably places malted barley at the heart of the tasting. With lots of altruism, it skilfully showcases every fruity, herbaceous, spicy, floral and honeyed aspect of this particularly well-balanced Craigellachie.

the concentrated initial nose is vanilla, herbaceous (straw) and roasted (coffee). Allowed to breathe, it becomes creamy and chocolatey. Gradually, beeswax and spices (cinnamon) bring lots of nobility to the expression. The slender attack is heady (iris) and fruity (black grape). The mineral and spring-like (wildflower) mid-palate is intensely malty. Grains of malted barley literally roll across the palate. The silky start of the finish has a grainy mouthfeel (puffed rice). Gradually the register becomes fruity (mango, blackcurrant). The retro-nasal olfaction highlights the sherry’s influence.

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : topaz with copper tints.
  • Nose : refined, concentrated. The beautifully vanilla and herbaceous (straw, cut hay) first nose is also roasted (tobacco, coffee). Allowed to breathe, it becomes creamy and chocolatey. Gradually, beeswax, candied orange, liquorice and spices (ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg) bring lots of cohesion to an aromatic palette with a very noble expression.
  • Palate : svelte, lively. The delicately woody attack wavers between heady florals (lily, iris) and fruit (pear, apple, black grape). The especially mineral (zan liquorice sweets, slate) and spring-like (wildflower) mid-palate is also incredible malty. Grains of malted barley literally roll across the palate. At the end of the palate, very pleasant honey (acacia, lime blossom), apricot and vegetal (moss, dried leaves) notes appear together in perfect harmony.
  • Overall : long, silky. The magnificently granular mouthfeel (puffed rice) at the start of the finish brings lots of luminosity to the palette of flavours. In its furrows, exotic fruits (banana, mango, pineapple) and black fruits (blackcurrant, bramble) enrich the fruity register of the very end of the palate. The retro-nasal olfaction highlights the sherry’s influence (almond, lime, walnut). The empty glass is characterized by notes of burnt wood, black tea and salted butter caramel.

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.
