Craigellachie is the rock at the heart of Speyside, yet is anything but your typical ‘Speyside’ whisky. Considered old fashioned even in 1891; some might call the distillery stubborn or eccentric, but we believe its stayed true to traditions.
Its muscular, robust character comes from the use of traditional worm tub condensers, cooling the vapour once leaving the stills and arising in less copper contact during production. It’s this full, yet aromatic, character that has made Craigellachie a prized malt for blending since the late 19th century.
At 46%, with no caramel colouring or chill filtration, this is a single malt for those who can handle big flavour. If you’ve cracked peaty malts, now it’s time for Craigellachie.
Finished In Bourbon & Sherry Casks
KEY FLAVOUR NOTES
