Whisky Reviews for Craigellachie 2008 SV

7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 81.58 points

  1. GuybrushThreepwood scored this whisky 70 points Expert Senior

    Not for sensitive noses. He has a pronounced sulfur note. Did not leave even after an hour in the glass. You have to like that. It was too much for me, especially since the taste of sulfur also came through in the taste. Otherwise, I found the alcohol well integrated and the texture beautiful velvety almost creamy.

    After one year of oxidation in the bottle, the sulfur note was less dominant yesterday and a few flavors of distillery and sherry butt came out. For those who like it dirty - for example. the Longrow 14 likes - could this be something here.

    So sulphuric it's undrinkable (for me).

      Yowzah! Houston, we have some sulphur. And it's not the good kind. Icelandic geysers, rotten eggs, rubber... Yuk. No. I'm trying to get through this initial turn-off and access other aspects, but I can't seem to manage. Forget it.
    • Taste

      Burning firework fuses, rubber bands, thick, creamy aspartame-y sweetness. Red fruits, I guess, but waaaaay in the background, behind a wall of sulphur.

      Icelandic geysers, rotten eggs, rubber... (see above)

    The first nose was not good - too much Sulfur full width in the face. The second nose as well. Have 2 times over a funnel transferred to supply more oxygen - still too much Sulfur. Amortized as inedible. After 3 Lagavulin drams as afterburner acceptable. Now only after 2 months and 1/4 rest in the bottle, it is slowly edible.

    If the overall picture fits, I would call myself a friend of sulfuric miss notes. Here I find that they complement the basic taste quite well and enrich an exciting element. For sulfur opponents, of course, no recommendation.

      After pouring in addition to sweet honey notes and apricots lying in the background quickly the sulfurous elements clearly. Matches, sulfurized dried fruits gain the upper hand, leave the fruity elements only a few inches above the glass perceptible.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Pleasant texture, sweetness occurs immediately, mirabelle and honey are now dominating, only a little later come sulfurized dried fruits, sweet raisins (PX) and matches.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium in length, slightly oaky, but above all sweet, fruit and light sulfur.
