Craigellachie 23 Year Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky Singapore is a 700mL whiskey with 46% Alcohol By Volume (ABV) from Scotland sold by Bevbrands Singapore.
A robust, muscular whisky.
Speyside whiskies are known to be fruity and floral, but as the bad boy of Speyside, Craigellachie defies with its oil fired, rich character. Craigellachie 23YO was distilled in 1995 and although Craigellachie is typically aged in a mixture of ex- bourbon and sherry casks, this exceptional dram was matured in 100% Oloroso Sherry casks.
This unique bottling of 23-year-old Craigellachie solely uses only the finest Oloroso Sherry casks, to age the new limited small batch expression, imparting a subtle richness to this famously robust whisky. Notes of cinnamon, rich dried fruits, creamy vanilla and the signature notes of pineapple chunks in syrup emerge, invigorated with a zing of menthol freshness.
The oldest in the range of Craigellachie single malts, first released in 2014. Awarded the prestigious title of Best Whisky in Show at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2015.
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.
