  1. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Hmm, I would clearly prefer the parallel released, much younger Craigellachie of the UA, unfortunately some bad notes for me ...
    • Nose
      Unfortunately, extremely intensely (like almost never) the rubber bump in the nose, which one always thundered against the walls as a child, rather closed otherwise, honey, sweet malt, toffee, a little peach, a little camphor, marzipan, candied ginger, but everything very discreet & hidden with a lot of time
    • Taste
      Unfortunately, the very clear rubber flavor, especially at the start, actually the whole process is like in the nose with a little red apple, unfortunately a little bit of sulfur, musty oak, camphor, nutmeg
    • Finish
      Apple peel, nutmeg, polish, malt, medium length, still a touch of sulfur

    Have the 21 year old Speyside in the glass for the second time now and I'm ready for some notes.

    The nose offers me a freshly opened pack of Mon Cherie, followed by raisins, forest honey, a hint of mint, dried lavender, balsamic vinegar and some fresh strawberries, very nice

    The taste gives me a good rush of spices and dark chocolate with a little orange peel in the background. With a little water on the second day, ripe cherries and the fresh mint are added.

    The finish is long with a good portion of cocoa and a breeze of cinnamon. I only really feel the oak in the finish.

    Overall, I find this filling really tasty and round.
    A really nice sherry board without flaws.

    Somewhat disappointing in the nose, the whisky only opens up over time and hints of chocolate and sherry sweetness appear, but without being over the top. A somewhat slow start.

    He really gets going in his mouth. It shows dark chocolate notes, bitters around 70% I would type, some wood and floral, fragrant notes. As if the chocolate had hidden a filling that can only be tasted in the mouth, and which gives the dark chocolate more sweetness - in terms of blossom sugar - than dark chocolate still has.

    In the finish it remains a bit present, but soon disappears and disappears in nirvana.
    The alcohol appears to be well integrated, the whisky can also be enjoyed without the addition of water, but offers enough scope to experiment a little more.

    All in all a successful, honest whisky, which has its strengths above all in the taste. If you add the very good price, a distillate with which in my opinion you can't go wrong and have a lot of fun. But definitely give time in the glass! He thanks it!
