Provenance CRAIGELLACHIE 10 YR 2009
Underrated Speyside distillery owned by the Bacardi group. Mainly used as a malt component of the Dewars blend. Overseen by the incredibly well stocked Craigellachie Hotel this is a dram of easy appeal.
Nose: Big, round and full of barley sweetness, with later honey and syrup.
Pallet: Opens with gentle spices and runs to puddings and a fudgy quality.
Finish: Indulgent with a mocha, juicy citrus and a big malty character.
