A rare, meaty, well-aged Single Malt from a storied Speyside distillery.

Craigellachie has been producing Single Malt Whisky on site since 1891. It is one of the original Speyside Whiskies. The name Craigellachie means "rocky hill" and, sure enough, it’s a Speysider that sits on a rocky hill directly across from The Macallan facility in the township of Aberlour. A majority of their production goes into the famous Dewer’s blend, and only a few Single Malt releases come available. Craigellachie is owned by Bacardi, perhaps not surprisingly through their Dewer’s & Sons subsidiary.

A few years ago, getting your hands on an official Single Malt release of Craigellachie was a rare thing indeed. But the clamoring of fans got the distillery’s attention and they started coming out with regular Single Malt offerings in 2014.

Craigellachie 17 Year Old is a stellar, perfectly aged example of Craigellachie Single Malt with a rich, meaty flavor profile. This superior dram is delivered at a perfect 46% ABV.

Smartass Corner:
"Meaty" is a word to describe Scottish Whiskies that have a slightly higher sulfur content, and thus a hint of "roasted meats and matchsticks" in the flavor profile. This style is created using shorter still and tubing with less copper since copper removes sulfur from Spirits.

Ratings & Reviews
Best scotch I’ve had so far. I normally don’t like scotch but there is definitely an exception for this one.
Smooth, slightly sweet, mildly spicy, with a nice finish.
Absolutely amazing Scotch with a lot going on.
Smooth and sweet
This is probably the best 17-yo out there right now. Smooth and sherried lovely, can be a bit heavy for a summers day but late a summer night perfect.
