Craigellachie 13 Year Old Bas-Armagnac Cask Finish

$64.99

Size
750ml, bottle

This Craigellachie 13 Year Old Bas-Armagnac Cask Finish Speyside single malt Scotch whisky spends 13 years maturing in ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks, before receiving a final touch in Bas-Armagnac casks from France. The influence of these Armagnac casks adds complexity and unique flavors to the whisky. Bottled at 46% ABV, it's non-chill filtered and contains no added coloring.

Description

On the Nose

Speyside Influence: The initial aroma offers a familiar warmth with notes of orchard fruits like ripe pears and crisp green apples. Hints of honey and malt peek through, hinting at the whisky’s underlying sweetness.

Armagnac Intrigue: As you delve deeper, the influence of the Armagnac casks emerges.

On the Palate

Balanced Harmony: The first sip delivers a delightful balance between the Speyside and Armagnac characteristics. 

Armagnac Depth: As the dram develops, the Armagnac influence becomes more apparent. Hints of cinnamon and clove become apparent, accompanied by a gentle smokiness that subtly persists in the backdrop.

The Finish

The true brilliance of this whisky reveals itself in its finish. It’s long and warming, with a gentle fading of the fruit and spice notes. Some reviewers mention a pleasant bitterness from the oak or a touch of honey sweetness that lingers on the palate.
