Whisky Reviews for Craigellachie 2006 whic

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.20 points

  1. Whisky-Connaisseur did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A delicious mix of yellow fruit aromas, creamy vanilla and light tobacco flavours, which are kept in good balance by a warming, yet subtle oak and ginger spiciness. Despite the high alcohol content it is pleasantly drinkable neat. It will certainly go well with a piece of white chocolate with almonds.

    I thank whic (Whiskycircle) for the complimentary sample.

    • Nose
      Fresh on the nose with sweet vanilla and fruity aromas of banana, ripe pear and mango. Slightly floral with some oak wood and ginger spice in the background.
    • Taste
      Sweet and intense on the palate with creamy vanilla notes and pear compote. Beautifully warming with a pleasant spice of oak and ginger, followed by crispy biscuits and a hint of tobacco leaf towards the finish.
    • Finish
      The finish shows a medium length with creamy fruit jam, followed by slightly bitter oak notes and some peppery spiciness towards the end.

      With water: Stays sweet after adding a few drops of water. Clear vanilla notes, but also significantly more pepper and oak spice. Also more floral notes while the fruitiness is a bit tamed. On the palate sweet and creamy with caramel and fruit. Prickling on the tongue, but also a bit more dry oak and ginger spice. The finish is still of medium length, but much drier with oak, ginger and tobacco notes.
