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)!

Golden brown.
 
Smell / Nose / Aroma
The opening is sweet & zesty with lots of lemon and fresh fruit, followed by the charm of dry hay.
 
Flavor / Taste / Palate
Oily, salty & meaty sensations flood the palate but creamy and nutty notes of marzipan and almonds soon take over the show.
 
Finish
Long heated finish with a peppery tingle.

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.
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.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
One reason that they now have enough production to meet the needs of Dewers, and issue their own single malt, is that in 2017 they switched to a seven-day work week.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
