A range of Craigellachie single malts was released for the first time in 2014. The distillery is known for its meaty character, and the 13-year-old is sweet, spicy and slightly smoky.Tasting Notes (2)
Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Big tropical-fruit aromas at first – mango and pineapple – followed by sweet and savoury notes of ham glazed with Demerara sugar and a whiff of barbecue smoke.
More sweet fruit, tempered by savoury smokiness. Punchy and full-flavoured, with the meaty smoke balancing well with the refreshing tropical fruit. Mouth-filling texture; makes a statement!.
The smoked-meat notes gently fade, along with a hint of spent match.
A world away from the delicate Speyside style, this is full of fruit, fire and flavour.
Producer's Tasting Notes
Bonfire night: aromas of oozing toasted marshmallows, and baked apples studded with cloves, with the tang of sulphury, cordite lingering in the background.
To the taste this 13 year old Craigellachie delivers malty, sweet complexity, with a finish that is slightly smokey.

Was so disappointed with this.It had been on my hitlist for ages and lo and behold I got a free sample.I know it's not a good premis for an opinion but it has made me pause and reflect.So many more out there to try!2.75/5
Pour a fat dram, add a drop of water, and just leave it alone for a while. Let the matchstick subside (I love wormtubs!) with a rest in the glass. Enjoy. This whisky is fabulous.
Great balance between smoke and sweet. Great robust character but sweet finish. First time but a fan
Definitely a very original and great tasting whisky. 46% and non chill filtered does a great job here. Everything is quite well in balance with eachother. Smells strong and fruity and indeed it can be quite spicy on the tongue (a bit of water and letting it breath indeed helps to ease this out). The taste quickly develops into a smooth meaty flavour, which is haven't tasted before with any other whisky. Great job by this distillery. Let's pray the quality stays consistent!
