Nose

Nach 2 Minuten im Glas breitet sich ein sehr angenehmes Arma im unmittelbaren Umfeld aus: intensive Holznoten, ganz leicht Vanille.

Taste

Im Mund dann eher etwas würzig. Lorbeeren, Nelken, Heu, Holz. Aber doch auch Lakritze, Sägespäne.

Finish

Im Abgang bleibt die Würze, mittellang.

Comments

Ein sehr schöner Malt, der als Ergänzung zu dem 13- und 17-jährigen, aber vor allem zu dem überragenden 23-jährigen gut dazu passt...

Pomelo, vanilla, ginger, waxy apple and freshly cut grass.

Taste

Spicy, sour. Ginger and pepper, tannic oak. Vanilla ice cream, citruses, red apple.

Finish

Medium length, spicy, oaky.

Comments

Pleasant from speyside. The distillery character is well noticable, but the 23 years old is superior.

Nose

Насыщенный, сухой, лимонад, сироп, лимонная цедра, красные яблоки, груша, цветочно-медовые нотки, сухие доски, древесная пыль, жевательная резинка, мандарины, кумкват, в целом, очень свежий и праздничный, летний.

Taste

Плотный, маслянистый, лимонно-древесный, немного красного перца и имбиря, красные яблоки, мандарины, кондитерско-медовые нотки, цитрусовые цукаты, всё это сдобрено чуть более строгими терпкими дубовыми нотками с лёгкой травяной горчинкой.

Finish

Свежее, пряное, имбирный лимонад, мёд, лёгкая дубовая горчинка, мандарины, корка апельсина.

Comments

Приятная неожиданность, не думал, что трэвэл-ритейл версия Крейгэллахи будет настолько приятной, от аромата и до финиша на одном дыхании, без потери темпа, браво, очень хороший вышел молт, тёплый, летний, праздничный, отлично сбалансированный, очень плотный и насыщенный для 46%, весьма похож на 18-летку Гленморанжи, но более лёгкую и беззаботную. А что там у нас с ценой? Около сотни евро, ну неплохо, неплохо, могло быть и хуже.

loads of beeswax candles, reminding me of the 23yo.(not quite as big as the 23yo) apples, vanilla, icecream wafers, pleasant hints of oak, ginger cookies. give it a few minutes and it gets more floral and a little grassy. lovely!

Taste

waxy, almost coating your teeth, honeycomb, quite sweet, but theres a huge spiciness against the sweetness, vanilla,
vanilla ice cream,, ginger, tarte tatin. absolutely lovely

Finish

long, getting a little drier and slightly oaky

Comments

imho this is brilliant stuff and much more affordable than the 23yo.
I looove the 23yo but in the uk its absolutely overprized. so all you british friends, try to get you a sample of this one
90/100

Some cider, apples, bees wax, a little vanilla,

Taste

There are apples, some vanilla and spices from the oak, a fine note of a little pepper.

Finish

The spices and the pepper make a decent finish

Comments

A fine and well balanced dram. I was not expecting too much but this is decent stuff.
