  • Distiller:

    Craigellachie

  • Bottler:

    Gordon MacPhail

  • ABV:

    43%

  • Age:

    11 Years

  • Intro:

    This is an independent bottling of spirit distilled at Craigellache by Gordon Macphail. Bottled after 11 years of aging, this release is bottled at 43% ABV with no coloring.

  • Nose:

    Super bright and fruity. Apples, raspberry, lemon, lime. Almost a starburst candy note of sorts. Smells like a box of Runts candies.

  • Taste:

    Sweet, lots of toffee, caramel, vanilla. Light sulfur. Loads of fruits again but not as much as the nose. Predominantly lemon, apple, some raspberry. Heat in check. Think to medium mouth feel.

  • Finish:

    Short, but no heat. Lots of pear, whipped cream, apples, caramel, light baking spice.

  • Overall:

    What a wild dram from start to finish. The nose is a fruit bomb, of candylike nature. The palate transitions to pure dessert and fruit. The finish has a bit more of an apple pie vibe. All over the place. Fun and different, and I think that's worth rewarding.

  • Score:

    6
