There are less than four hundred bottles of this Highland Single Malt gem aged fourteen years in a single ex-Sherry cask.

Douglas of Drumlanrig is an independent bottler of Scottish Spirits dealing almost exclusively in rare and orphaned Single Malts. To us, it seems like a great way to earn a living — search the rickhouses of the worlds greatest distilleries and roll out your favorite barrels for limited edition, single-cask release. They were founded in 1948 and are now a part of International Spirits & Wines.

Craigellachie has been producing Single Malt Whisky on site since 1891. It’s 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.

Craigellachie 14 Year Old Douglas of Drumlanrig is a rare, occasionally released gem. The last time it was available was in September of 2019 and it was universally praised and sold out quickly. This bottling is from a single ex-Sherry cask distilled in February of 2000 that yielded less than 400 bottles at a spot-perfect 46% ABV.

Smartass Corner:
Douglas of Drumlanrig was the illegitimate son of James Douglas, the 2nd Earl of Douglas. Born in the 14th century, being "illegitimate" meant that life would be hard. Never the less, he proved his valor and was eventually knighted and had a notable career as a soldier and diplomat — and that’s worth a dram in our opinion.

90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
