Whisky Reviews for Craigellachie 2006 LsD

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 79.75 points

  1. Hemdl scored this whisky 74 points Connoisseur

    One of those (young) bottlings that the world does not need. Something usually goes into larger batches or is mixed in somewhere, but now also like to throw sometimes as a single cask on the market. Nice new (whisky) world.

      At first, it looks much younger than it really is. The alcohol I take surprisingly strong despite drinking strength. Otherwise rather unspectacular. Dry oak, more green fruits and slightly malty sweetness
    • Taste
      70 70
      Dry, bitter and with a very touchy note of moldy wood. From the fruit sweetness almost nothing to feel and a sherry keg would have been the last one that I would have typed. Acts here also much younger and still very immature.

      Again, quite dry with a strong tendency to bitterness. Becomes a little better with the second sip, but not really good. Unbalanced.

  2. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Some he will not like the touch of mildew, I like the note as a contrast to the beautiful fruitiness of the fresh sherry here, to chocolate and malt, very nice.
    • Nose
      Sour cherry, red apple, milk chocolate, toffee, hint of mellow wood, malt, caramel
    • Taste
      Also here beautiful cherry, already slightly mushy, chocolate, cocoa, slightly musty oak, dark honey, apple compote, licorice, fennel, rosemary, clove, malt
    • Finish
      Dry-bitter with a certain fruitiness, cherry, clove, fennel, rye bread, medium-long
