The Single Cask Craigellachie 2009 10 Years Old Single Malt Whisky 700ml
Craigellachie sits firm in the heart of speyside, flat bang in the middle of scotch territory. It obstinately stands alone on a rock overlooking the confluence of the rivers Fiddich and Spey. But rid your mind of that typical ' Speyside " flavor, for craigellachie rebels against this.
It consciously makes no concessions to modern-day house rules. Craigellachie is an unapologetic and unique whisky, robust and muscular with a hint of pineapple. The distillery was built in 1891, when the great Alfred Barnard described craigellachie whisky as ' a style seldom met'
