Craigellachie 9 year old 2014

Orcines, Refill Hogshead, Cask n°30024

An assembly malt. That's how Craigellachie was referred to in the 19th century. Contrary to what a modern consumer might think, it's actually a compliment. A single malt capable of elevating any blend due to its character and finesse is a rarity. Craigellachie is part of this exclusive club, being both muscular and ethereal, fruity, and robust. The complex nose of this 9-year-old leaves no room for doubt: it's a heavyweight! Delicate notes of apricot and vetiver on the nose lead to a robust and enveloping palate, bursting with pronounced woodiness and spices. A small explosion in a glass.

The Distillery

Located by the river Spey and the Fiddich, its tributary, the Craigellachie distillery makes quite an impression. Its large glass facade, like a stage, can be seen from the roadside and displays 4 large copper stills, key players in the production of this characterful single malt. However, it is behind the scenes, at the back of the distillery, that another decisive operation takes place. The worm tub condensers, characteristic of Craigellachie, contribute to the cooling process, giving this Speysider a particularly robust structure and a dominant sulphur note. It is this combination of refinement and strength that makes Craigellachie a malt that is prized by blenders (and connoisseurs).
