Whisky Reviews for Craiglodge 1998

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 81.53 points

  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    a curious droplet. In any case, in combination with the heavy sherry keg a very unique taste experience
    • Nose
      sweet, fermented fruit, leather, burned plastic, stable, surprisingly little smoke, rather the earthy peat notes.
    • Taste
      more burnt plastic, chemical, sweet, fruity, but also dry and spicy.
    • Finish
      quite dry from the wood, a strong bitterness, menthol, a bit like these Italian bitter liqueurs, so quite sweet for me, a lot of peat smoke, long.

  2. cuhp scored this whisky 71 points Expert Senior

    The nose is delicious, but taste and finish are way too bitter!
    • Nose
      Subtle caramel, sherry, hint of cinnamon, citrussy, quite delicious
    • Taste
      Salt, licorice, caramel, intense tar, thick, very bitter
    • Finish
      Salt, licorice, caramel, tar, bitter

  3. MaltMartin scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    A very expressive though not complex whisky. Not easy to forget.
    • Nose
      Like walking into a leather store! Also horse stable fragrancy. Lots of espresso and dark choclate. Hints of heavy sherry. Actually, eEverything in this nose seems to be heavy...
    • Taste
      Strange industrial taste. Petrol, burnt rubber and some undefined chemicals (!). Earthy notes later on.
    • Finish
      Quite long, coffee and tannines. Sweetness as well.

  4. Erik Elixer scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    N: sherry, peat, a bit sourish, toffee, later like a `dubble` (roasted) beer
    T: old wood, smoked fish, syrup and honey
    F: tobacco, sweet and smoky
    tasted with Aby

  5. aby scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    nose: full oloroso, toffee, bitter, nuts, 

    taste: burnt wood, rubber, smocked mackerel, dry wood

    overall: very pronounced, not a balanced whisky but spectacular it is!

    tasted with Erik Elixer

    available as sample on: whiskysample.nl  (sorry, no more)

  6. Feusi scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    Deep nutty notes, heavy sweetness. Oranges and lemons in the appeal, peaty smoke and red berries, slightly bitter on the palate. Rarely dark red color. The smoke first comes on the finish, long lasting and not unpleasant. If you searching for something other, you may buy it.
