Whisky Reviews for Craigellachie 2008 SV

  1. Prof_Dr_John scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    A very good, balanced everyday whisky from Craigallachie. Not dyed, not filtered and cask strength. That's the way it has to be. I like it very much. For about 65 euros you get here really a good whisky, which can convince. The trend is yes to these "young" whiskys with cask strength, as this fits in well here. I like it better than all the Glenlivet bottlings for the embassy etc ... For a scoring I have to try it again. But given the good PLV I would see him at 89 or 90 points.
    • Nose
      Dark fruits (plums, raisins), butterscotch, vanilla, sweetness, caramel, with water disappear the initially present woody notes. A touch of delicate furniture polish is added with a touch of mint.
    • Taste
      The 63.3% are present, but not intrusive. Greasy and oily, the malt is on the tongue. Salivation is stimulated immediately. The sweetness of nosing continues in the mouth. The alcohol is not disturbing. Caramel, Butterscotch dominate, the red fruits from the nose step into the background. The fresh mint becomes stronger. Slowly, the alcohol tingles at the tip of the tongue. The spicy notes tapping slightly discreetly again, without being intrusive. Everything well balanced, without any junk.
    • Finish
      Medium to warm. The alcohol settles on the tongue, on the cheeks runs the saliva ... slowly, the mouth becomes drier and the malt leaves a pleasant dry sweetness, where the spicy notes slowly emerge again.
