  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Tasted blind. Enthusiasm 4/5 Whisky n ° 1737
    • Nose
      A well-balanced nose with fruity, malt, cashew nut, everything looks juicy and creamy.
    • Taste
      In the mouth, melted, very mellow. Sherry soft, he is wise enough.
    • Finish
      Final quite opulent.

  2. Donwaldorf scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    (Blinded) Pleasantly surprised, it's very good, with this little side Cooley / Irish very good. A real pleasure to taste it.
    • Nose
      What a nice nose on fruity and sweet ... a beautiful greed is announced with butter, pastry and fruit yoghurt.
    • Taste
      Spades lightly, we are on the fruits and the acidulous sweets
    • Finish
      Nice length on the fruit, pastry and buttered. Gourmet finale!

  9. aphex scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    A very old school dram. Could really pass for an older release (age or date-wise). I'm very fond of this kind of profile. Complex, not easy but rewarding.

    Tasting notes from december 2016.
    • Nose
      Varnish, dried fruits, malt, spices. Kind of dusty and smoky. It might need aeration. Now it's more fruity and grassy. Apple and orange. Still these varnish/polish notes.
    • Taste
      Dried fruits, oak, leather, orange notes again, spices. Slightly salty.
    • Finish
      Long, drying, smoky.

  10. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Craigellachie makes a good distillate. It's not a well-known distillery, but its juice is usually quite viscous, complex, and has a distinctive soft, warm funkiness (not springbank funk, but it's certainly there). Refill sherry? At first, I scored this only an 88, but over time, I came to appreciate this more.
