Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: Berry Bros & Rudd 70cl / 60.6%
A single cask of 11-year-old Craigellachie 2010, bottled by our ermine-cloaked chums at Berry Brothers & Rudd to celebrate the imminent Chinese New Year.
This 2010 Craigellachie came from a sherry butt #10028 whose contents underwent a further oloroso sherry finish before being bottled at its mighty cask strength of 60.6%, yielding 550 bottles from the cask. This will be an epic dram.
Please note that BBR's 2010 Craigellachie 11-year-old is Maximum One Bottle Per Customer

Official Tasting Notes
Nose: The heavy distillate from Craigellachie works wonderfully in ex-sherry wood, powerful aromas of struck matches and malting barley roll into muscular notes of dates, clove rock and sultana bread.
Palate: The palate is incredibly thick bringing a waxy character carried with honey, almonds, prunes with bursts of lime and mango towards the back palate.
Finish: Wood spice dominates on the finish with an array of baking spices dancing across the tongue. Powerful, complex. cerebral and moreish!
