Deer, Bear & Moose Craigellachie 2006

Our latest find has been patiently groomed for 12 years to be enjoyed by Flaviar Members worldwide. Usually, a Scotch of such class would be kept hidden in a dark cellar for another decade or two then sold for an insane amount of dinero to someone who'd likely use it for bragging rights only. Well, not today. And not this Scotch.
 
Craigellachie 12 YO is a Whisky that deserves to be tasted and shared. Another great Scottish Malt well deserving of the Deer, Bear & Moose seal of approval. Sure, the name is a mouthful, but so is this Whisky. Sherry-tinged, non-chill filtered, straight from the cask, and if the gods grin your way, soon to swirl in your glass.
 
Craigellachie. Hard to spell but easy to remember. This Scotch is a Moose(t)!

This is an awesome expression, oily, smooth with a ton of honey and vanilla on the palete. Not long, but has a great finish!

John,
Good clean finish not to boozy for how high in alchohol
 
Eduardo
Eduardo,
After having fought tooth and nail with FedEx to finally receive the bottle, I can only say it was well worth the wait and the fight for the first glass out of the bottle. Absolutely splendid on the palette; ranging from a soft fruity touch to a nice vanilla backing brought home with the moderate peppery taste of the ABV level. I hope to gain entry for the next bottle release as this for me was a hit and can’t wait to see what others will be brought to the table.
 
Bruce
Bruce,
This was a bit hot right out of the bottle. Added some water and it smoothed it right out. The vanilla flavors just jumped out of the glass. A great sipping whisky that I will enjoy slowly. The exciting part is by adding water I can make it go much farther.
 
Burt
Burt,
This one is right in the center of my attraction template. Unfilled filtered, so it has a lush mouth feel. No added coloring - check. Notes of fruit and vanilla. 58.8 abv gives it a sizzle on the finish that highlights that pepper note. Delicious!
