This exceptional and unique Craigellachie 23yo is now available here at the Dewar’s Aberfeldy Distillery, which we are delighted to be able to share with you.
Craigellachie’s fruity and robust spirit is usually aged in a combination of both Bourbon and Sherry casks. For this exceptional Craigellachie 23 Years Old Small Batch release however, our Malt Master, Stephanie Macleod, decided to mature it solely in the finest Oloroso Sherry Casks. “Maturing in 100% Oloroso casks imparts a soothing roundness to Craigellachie’s robustness’.
The Oloroso cask character helps to add a subtle richness to this famously robust whisky, adding flavours of cinnamon, brown sugar, rich dried fruits, and creamy vanilla to the signature pineapple notes you expect from a Craigellachie.
This Small Batch release sees the bringing together of a small number of casks, creating this rare and limited release. Only 3,198 bottles were produced of this whisky, which has been bottled at a strength of 46%, with no colourant added or chill filtration.
A dram for those who can handle big flavour!
