Distilled at Speyside's Craigellachie distillery in May 2006 and matured in a sherry butt for 15 years before bottling in March 2022, this single cask expression forms part of independent bottler Hunter Laing & Co's Old Malt Cask range. Only 562 bottles have been produced, each one at a strength of 50% abv.
The nose has black cherry, toffee, and garden herbs. The palate has notes of sweet red berries, smoked meats, and gunpowder before giving way to a long, pleasant, and oaky finish.
Founded in late 19th century Craigellachie is now owned by Bacardi, they released their 1st single malt in 2004. Until then its primary output was used for the White Horse blend. Another user of worm tubs, the long fermentation coupled with lighter copper contact from the cold worm tubs results in a fruit driven very aromatic style of whisky.
