    This Single Malt Scotch Whisky was distilled at Craigellachie Distillery and filled into a sherry butt on 24/03/2008. Whiskybroker re-racked this into first fill Pedro Ximenez sherry octaves on 20/12/2016 and after nearly 17 months, bottled this on 17/5/2018.

  5. Dre73 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Very nice dram, full bodied and nice sherrycask influences.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Clearly lots of sherrycask influence: Fruity, prunes, berries, leather, coffee, cappuccino. Also marzipan, a lot of nuts and caramel, honey. Also some earthy tones.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Full-bodied and pungently, clearly the nuts again, herbal. Creamy mouthfeel. Fruits, berries. And some caramel flavours.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Still a little pungent, warming feel. Sweet, honey. Long finish, herbal, nuts, some chocolate now coming in. Coffee, and later on some tobacco.
