  1. Bembel scored this whisky 85 points Member Junior

    Advance information about my point allocation:
    I rate my whisky's privately with a ten-point scale
    (XX, X of 10.0)!

    Smell / nose
    Heavy oily streaks in the glass. Cool start, a hint of clove hovers next to the rich cherries, very fruity overall with a slightly sour touch (could come from the sulfur typical of Craigellachia), roasted grain. Later light vanilla, orange zest with honey glaze, caramel / toffee. The orange becomes more intense with each sip. After a long time, tobacco comes.

    Taste / mouth
    Strong, full, dry. Full load of bitter cocoa, followed by a pleasant pinch of black pepper. Nuts join in, juicy ripe oranges, tingling oak (becomes more dominant with every sip).
    The dryness suggests hints of light smoke.

    Departure / throat
    Medium - long, warming with spices (gingerbread), orange.

    notes
    Series 2/3 is eagerly awaited !! For just 7 years this Craigellachie is terrific and loaded with flavors!
