  2. markjedi1 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    The nose is a whole panoply of summery fruit with peach and mango in the lead, with some sweet butter, tarte tatin, a mix of nuts and even a drop of cod oil hot on its heels. Some green grapes and a touch of liquorice as well as a handful of wood shavings turn this into a very pleasant nose.

    The arrival is very round and creamy with a spicy kick to the teeth. I even get a hint of curry. Then an uprising of white fruit: apples and pears in a butterscotch jacket. The peach follows. Great balance, turning this into a soothing dram despite the high ABV.

    The finish is deliciously long, sweet and spicy.

    What a lovely Craigellachie. Nice depth for such a young animal. However, adding a few drops of water makes it very quaffable and elegant.
