The tenth stroke of the Brothers in Malt was launched yesterday. Craigellachie is a rather unknown and, wrongly, underestimated distillery. Color: light gold, slightly oily when panning Nose: soft and dry. Not intrusive, very delicate. It takes until the nose gets something to do. It comes mandarin and vanilla. Bright grapes and a sweet reminiscent of sugar toffee put through. Buttertoast is paired with some heather and a pinch of tangerine in the mouth Taste: Easy sweet start ... and then .... ui ui ui has power. Other than the nose suggests he is right there. Directly present with an explosion of vanilla and light fruits. Citrus, malt and ginger are added gradually. Heather and floral notes have now the upper hand. Everything ebbs something and calms down. It will be cozy. A taste reminiscent of sweet popcorn emerges. Vanilla is added again. Finish: sweetish-tart, vanilla, floral, light, medium long Conclusion: Once something completely different. An unknown still in top form. Impetuous and sensitive at the same time. I think he is very honest. Just for the reason that it was bottled without a finish from a 1st fill Bourbon Barrel. Our market is awash with Finishes, Matured and all that stuff. Here you have an honest piece of Scotland, distillery and craftsmanship of the Master Distiller in the glass.
