From 1851 to 1981 Glenburgie distillery was equipped with two Lomond stills that were used to produce a single malt called Glencraig. Glencraig is an increasingly hard to find single malt produced by Hiram Walker at Glenburgie as it was intended to be used as a different style of malt for their blends such as Ballatines Finest. This example is full of fresh and dried fruit on the nose and on the palate, you have both herbaceous, rustic and maritime flavours - Stunning!
