The second edition created to celebrate the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival. This 13 year old single cask whisky from Craigellachie was fully matured in cask #5241, a first-fill Bourbon barrel. Presented at a lively 60.1% ABV, we only managed to squeeze 213 bottles out of the cask!
To make this limited bottling even more special, all the bottles were hand filled, wax sealed, labelled and numbered by our team at the Dewar’s Aberfeldy Distillery.
Part of our Exceptional Cask Series, this is a collection of around 30 releases each year that showcase the best of our Single Malt portfolio, and the second time we have done a special bottling for this festival.
Described by some of the team who will be hosting our events at this year’s festival as ‘a belter’, our Malt Master Stephanie Macleod wanted to share her tasting notes for this exciting new release, “this is a beautiful, and moreish Craigellachie. Rich warming notes of caramelised banana and vanilla spice, complimented by juicy red berry and fresh apple undertones”.
This limited release will initially be exclusively available to guests who attend our events at this year's Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival, before being released to the wider public.
