Tasting Notes

Craigellachie 50 Year Old Cask 1610 Producer Notes

Colour: Dark amber.

Aroma: sweet toffee aromas lead to soft milk chocolate and toasted oak. hints of red apple come to the fore alongside subtle salted caramel.

Taste: smooth and fresh mint flavours combine with watermelon and subtle sweet tobacco. a hint of beeswax polish leads to dark honey and toasted almond.

Finish: a medium finish with cracked black pepper which softens to mature oak and lingering aniseed.
