Whisky Reviews for Craigellachie 2007 MDB

  1. Syleo scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    With the approximately 50 euros, which are called for the bottle, the price-performance ratio for the good ten years at Hogshead is still neat. Who likes the oily-heavy, sometimes even as pompous (if the word is not so negative) like basic character of Craigellachie, should "get a taste" here.

      The pale straw gold unfolds first in the glass with a 46 percent by volume surprisingly strong alcoholic note, which, however, quickly dampens and gives way to a strong floral aroma of ginger and honey, in the fresh peaches, tangerines and fruit cocktail from the can in an intense Overall impression of gooseberry cake and Muh-Muh cream sweets resonate. Behind it follows the cream following the Craigellachie character heavy, oily and somewhat waxy through, a wet meadow in the summer rain, flaxseed oil, olives, sandalwood, peanuts and dark chocolate. Very nice and strong the whole thing, but also to enjoy with some caution, the Brennereicharakter is known not everyone.
    • Taste

      At first quite spicy, then increasingly oily and at the same time a bit bitter and sour, the gooseberry cake and cane sugar are dominant again in the tasting, followed by strong cocoa powder, orange zest and some lime, which then lightly metallic into sour cream and olives.
    • Finish
      82 82
      For a long time the Craigellachie tingles in the finish, slightly acidic-metallic and vinous, with hints of lime, sage, marzipan and cocoa.
