CRAIGELLACHIE 13 Year Old
CRAIGELLACHIE 13 Year Old. One of the three official Craigellachie bottlings released in 2014, their 13 year old single malt Scotch whisky handsomely shows off the bold, robust character of the distillery’s output.
Oodles of dynamic fruit notes with a distinctive current of smoke running through the middle. Single malt Craigellachie hasn’t been seen much outside of indie bottlings recently, so this is an ace return to our glasses from the distillery!
A STYLE SELDOM MET
In 1891 a WHISKY EXPERT noted that CRAIGELLACHIE represented a style of whisky “seldom met with now,” which we took as a compliment.
Today we still use old-fashioned WORM TUBS to cool our spirit and bestow it with extra flavour, creating a dram to rival whiskies twice it age.
A WORM TUB is a long copper tube, sitting is a large tank of cold water, which snakes back and forth and gradually gets narrower.
in 1891 many distilleries condensed their spirit this way, giving their whiskies a distinctive, meaty character.
CRAIGELLACHIE is one of very few still benefiting from this traditional technique.
