17 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky 700ml
Speyside whiskies are known to be fruity and floral, but as the bad boy of Speyside, Craigellachie defies with its oil fired, rich character. Craigellachie 17 Year Old is smooth and mellow, the aroma opens with vanilla and rich, silky notes of exotic fruits, dried pineapples and a hint of smoky liquorice. "... A thick Greek yogurt tang bursts with lemon in the finish before the malts return to kiss you goodnight. This is all four food groups in a glass." - Blair Phillips, Distiller

About the brand
The Craigellachie distillery was built in 1891 by Craigellachie Distillery Co. Limited, a group of blenders and merchants led by Alexander Edward. Two years later, it was incorporated as a limited company and in 1896 it was reconstructed as Craigellachie-Glenlivet Distillery Ltd. During the years that followed, ownership passed to Peter Mackie (in 1916), the Distillery Company Limited (in 1927) and SMD (in 1930). The transfer to SMD marked the beginning of a period of stability for Craigellachie; apart from a reconstruction in 1964-65 during which the number of pot stills was doubled, relatively little happened at the distillery. In 1998, it was sold to John Dewar & Sons. During its history, the distillery has released only a handful of official bottlings. The distillery's product is currently primarily used for Dewar's blended whisky. In 2014, a 13-year-old, 17-year-old, a travel retail exclusive 19-year-old, and a limited 23-year-old were released as part of the Dewar & Sons' Last Great Malts of Scotland.

I had a pour of this last evening during a tasting facilitated by Craigellechie. This was a piece of the lottery for the 51 yr old tasting which 150 individuals around the globe got an opportunity to attempt. Luckily @Scott_E was one of them and Im appreciative I was his visitor for the occasion. So...at the time I truly preferred this one. It was a progressively refined smoother variant of the 13. Kind of Puncture Brosnans Bond rather than Daniel Craigs unpleasant and tough one. All things considered however I incline toward the 13 for that harsh edge. To me its consistently ordinary to discover smooth adjusted single malts however such a great amount of harder to discover harsh and truly even ones. That being said...this was damn acceptable. The substantial notes were less articulated versus the 13 the sulfurous edges streamlined a piece. Im happy I tasted this yet Ill be a purchaser of the 13 only for that roughness.

Distiller gave this articulation one more point than the 23. So did a couple of individuals in the remark area on MofM. All things considered i'm apprehensive I need to vary here. Alright this 17yo is acceptable unique not the same as different malts around and for this situation an extraordinary jug to go after when searching for a simple sipper yet not the slightest bit might i be able to contrast it with the ground-breaking 23 where everything is fruitier juicier increasingly intricate well better...much better imho. still I give this one a strong 4

A sweet simple to drink measure. Bunches of flavor and even. For 46% it is smooth as anyone might imagine. Certainly couldn't imagine anything better than to keep in my assortment

Brisk hit: Nearby whisky tasting in Glen Cairn. Delicate Sweet fruity nose. Plumbs blueberry or dark cherry Butterscotch caramel. Delicate sweet appearance that promptly turns cinnamon zesty. A blaze of red hots that settles down to ground cinnamon. At that point turns sweet with vanilla apples pears and nectar. Shivery long yet the sweet flavors blur quick. Vanilla oak zest. Tasted: 3/6/19

Tasting Notes
Nose
Apple crumble, melon and raisins. Honey'd barley, a little hint of smoke and vanilla ice-cream.
Taste
It opens very sweet with pineapple and custard creams, though the meatiness soon shines through. More smoke on the palate than the nose, with a touch of clove and oak.
Finish
Waxy and smoky on the finish.
