Craigellachie 16yr Old Particular K&L Selection

  • Distiller:

    Craigellachie

  • Bottler:

    Old Particular

  • ABV:

    56.3%

  • Age:

    16 Years

  • Price:
    $$$$$
  • Intro:

    Distilled by Craigellachie and bottled by Old Particular for K&L Wines in California, this release is 16 years old and matured in a sherry cask. It's bottled at cask strength with no coloring or filtering.

  • Nose:

    Sour fruit, ethanol, honey, lemon, bitter, acidic sulphuric. Hard to believe I'm saying this, but for a 16yr old dram, it's not remotely enticing.

  • Taste:

    Sweet at first, honey butter, toffee, red grapes and blackberries. Ethanol, hot hot hot, bitter oak, sulphuric chemical character lactic and funky. Waxed fruits, in the fake way.

  • Finish:

    Short finish, rough, hot, artificial and plastic-y. No thanks.

  • Overall:

    A swing and a miss from Craigellachie, Old Particular and K&L Wines. Making it through this pour was tough.

  • Score:

    3
