A range of Craigellachie single malts was released for the first time in 2014. The distillery is known for its meaty character, and the 17-year-old is sweet and slightly smoky, with tropical fruit notes.Tasting Notes (1)

Well balanced and tasty. A surprise.
This is a surprise and a joy. The Craigellachie spirit is often too sulfury for my tastes, but this is an amazingly balanced, and well-crafted dram. The cask balance is perfect, a mixture of malt and sweet and spice... it is not dominated by any, but luxurious in each. It blows away the 13 year and I only wish my bottle was more full. The nose is a spectrum of fruits with a hint of oak, but on the palate the oak is glorious and mostly manifest as spices from the kitchen... a hint of ginger and curry, peaches and plums, cinnamon toast, a bit of coconut and maple syrup... and a gushing backbone of maltiness. Way too drinkable...
Rarely have I been privileged to try such a stunning, yet balanced dram. Craigellachie is often to sulfury for me, yet this whisky is divine, and balanced so well as to be nearly indecipherable. The heart of the whisky is a perfect balance of sherry and bourbon casks, sweet and spicy, with only a hint of ancient wood. Fruits and winter spices, but sung throughout with strong barley and breakfast breads... more, please. I feel lucky.
Very impressed, very smooth and I enjoy the touch of sweetness. And a tad bit of smoke..very easy to drink , no burn. Very good , if u enjoy Hibiki, or Monkey Shoulder's, this is far superior.
A splendid taste with a warm feel to it. Not to smoky but silky smooth.
