Craigellachie 17 yo

Craigellachie 17 yo

Official bottling
Single malt - Speyside
Chinese tea
46% ABV

Nose: Cream, yoghurt, egg white, toffee, hints of chocolate. 
Mouthfeel: Light body, thickens slightly, mouth coating, slightly oily. 
Tasting:  Bitter sour. Green tea, toffee, meringues, toast, chocolate, hints of leather. 
Finish: Long. Meringues, chocolate, orange peel, green tea. 


This whisky is eggy and rubbery, with a substantial sulphur note. Chocolatey and slightly tannic too. I haven't tried the official bottlings of Craigellachie until this one, but it's... strange, not to my taste. Eggy whiskies should be sweeter.


Not bad.
