To celebrate the first virtual Spirit of Speyside festival, we have created this limited edition Double Cask Craigellachie. 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.
Cask #5009 was distilled on 19th August 1999 and after 15 years in a refill hogshead cask was finished in a refill sherry butt. This edition is even more special than our usual Exceptional Casks, as it has been hand filled and labelled by the visitor center team at Dewar’s Aberfeldy Distillery. You’ll even get our handwriting on parts of the label!
The cask has only given up 376 bottles, which our Malt Master Stephanie Macleod describes as “Syrupy pineapple and ripe banana balanced beautifully with subtle cinnamon and grated chocolate”.
This is truly a unique small bottling that showcases the amazing interplay of distillery character and cask influence to create a sensational whisky. A proportion of the proceeds will go to charities in Craigellachie.
