Whisky Reviews for Craigellachie 1999 JB

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.00 points

  1. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Full, heavy, creamy, almost wind-like or clotted cream. Fine spices, such as cinnamon and vanilla, as well as malted aromas, malted milk, green hazelnuts, sweet icing particles and candied orange. Maybe a hint of smoke.
    • Taste
      Moderate. Delicate spiciness, fine smoke, fragrant oranges, roasted nuts, hay, full malty and juicy sherry tones.
    • Finish
      Full, slightly smoky and gently sherrytönig.

  2. Volanne scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    A pretty uncomplicated young malt that starts softly but ends up a little roughly and bitter. Unfortunately.
     
    Tasted blind.
    • Nose
      Classy though rather young. Soft cereals. Breakfast cereals (Honey Smacks?) and nuts. Warm bread. Rooty notes arise after a while.
    • Taste
      Starts soft but not weak, all on candy sugar and sugared coffee. Quite some oomph given the low ABV. Gets rougher then, with more liquorice and a growing bitterness.
    • Finish
      Long, with more tannins and a big rubbery bitterness.
