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.
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.
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.
Short finish, rough, hot, artificial and plastic-y. No thanks.
A swing and a miss from Craigellachie, Old Particular and K&L Wines. Making it through this pour was tough.
