One of four official bottlings from the Craigellachie distillery released in 2014 (after a long time of seeing very few official bottlings of theirs). The 23 year old is the oldest of the bunch, bringing plenty of bold fruit, complex herbs, refined oak and a touch of sulphur.
Nose: Lemon, orange and pineapple up front, backed up by warm oak and golden barley. Oak notes become increasingly toasty as it goes on.
Palate: Salted caramel, creamy vanilla and more orange zest. Cinnamon, nutmeg and a subtle whiff of sulphur give it plenty of depth.
Finish: The sulphur lasts, but it’s not overpowering – the sweet spices bring balance to the long finish.
