  1. The Prophet scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    All in all, a good whisky for its price, but not necessarily more interesting.
    • Nose
      86 86
      A pear coated with milk chocolate with a hint of vanilla. A lot of sweetness and very light cereal notes.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Smoothness and very oddly, metallic notes that do not disturb.
    • Finish
      81 81
      Fall flat quickly enough and leaves only bitterness. The milk chocolate notes remain the longest. Too bad there is no more history that develops.

  6. Alex Fridays scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Craigellachie 13YO is a good whisky. The aroma is a sweet with beewax, honey, light smoke, stewed apples notes. The light note of grilled meat is on background. The palate is a sweet with strong notes of beewax and honey, with nutty, spices,oak and light sulphur. The finish is a middle sweet, dry and spicy with honey and wax notes. This whisky is a sweet, smooth and easy drinkable.

  8. Oldpultnie scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      A thick sweet spiciness and light smoke. Floral touch in the back. Nothing complicated but very pleasant harmony.
    • Taste
      Smooth drinking is the right expression for this. Everything in balance. Sweet and sour, herbs and spices, light smoke all wrapped up in a velvet environment. Nothing complex, nothing special but most of all nothing unpleasant.
    • Finish
      Good finish, fruity, smoke and creamy.
