Craigellachie 13 Year old Scotch Whisky Finished in Bas-Armagnac Casks
46% ABV, 750 ml
Craigellachie is the rock at the heart of Speyside, yet is anything but your typical 'Speyside' whisky. Considered old fashioned even in 1891, its muscular robustness comes from the traditional worm tub condensers that bestow extra flavour. It's this full, yet aromatic, character that has made Craigellachie a prized malt since the late 19th century and highly-awarded in the modern age.
Armagnac is the oldest French spirit still made using traditional methods including worm tub condensers. This Craigellachie 13 is the first in the Craigellachie Cask Finish series and has been matured for a minimum of 13 years, first in American Oak casks and finished in Armagnac casks from the Bas region. This finish rounds our muscular Craigellachie.
This whisky bears notes of baked apples dusted with cinnamon and notes of caramel shortcake, offset by signature syrupy pineapples and fiery bonfire night aromas.
