Craigellachie 17 year old description

If you’ve cracked peaty malts, now it’s time to try Craigellachie's meaty malt. Non-chill-filtered and with no added colouring, the 17 year old expression is punchy and meaty.

Full gold in colour, from American oak casks. Strikingly more aromatic and fruity that the 13YO: ripe Galia melon, ripe peaches, juicy grapes, also shampoo and later light toffee. An oily mouthfeel and a sweet, slightly acidic taste, with nougat in the aftertaste. The scented, soapy aroma is enhanced by water, and the taste opened up.

Knowledge Bar

Built by the stubborn Peter Mackie in 1891, the Craigellachie distillery was described as old-fashioned even at that time. To this day, Craigellachie uses old-fashioned ‘worm tubs’ to cool and condense the distilled spirit. Worm tubs typically mean less copper contact during production which creates strong, meaty flavours.
