Whisky reviews for Craigellachie 2003 DR

2 users have left 2 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 74.00 points.

  1. Scherenschnitte scored this whisky 74 points Expert Senior

    Hot, harsh, bitter, some woody cereal notes, shitty mouthfeel. This shouldn't have been a single cask release.

  2. thatfamousgrouse did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Score: 65 (D if you must); I tried and I tried. I gave it water, time to oxidize, and many chances to turn things around. The only thing that makes this worth drinking is when I add some Craigellachie 13yo (OB) . Why the fuck did they bottle this cask? Not buying another ADR for a while.
    • Nose
      Quite hot, with wet paint, wet dog, apple cider, bright oak, cedar, and some watered-down ginger ale. Less bad with lots of water and time.
    • Taste
      Bitter with a light mouthfeel. Watery ginger and apple cider are still there, with lemon and cardamom. Also less bad with lots of water and time.
    • Finish
      There’s a dry, ashy bitterness, and some vomit-y sour apple note. It almost tastes like I had a recent sip of whisky. This doesn’t improve with water/time.
