Craigellachie – 1999 – 12 years Sherry 46,00%

Douglas of Drumlanrig 
Distilled : 09/1999 – Bottled : 12/2011 – Cask Number : 7975 – Alcool : 46%

The overall style of Craigellachie whisky is sweet and his taste of malt and nuts is marked by flavors of fruit and some smoke notes. It is found in the range of some independent bottlers and is especially recommended as a digestive.

Craigellachie distillery
La distillerie Craigellachie se niche coeur du Speyside, au sud-est du village éponyme, entre Dufftown, Aberlour et Rothes. Non loin de là, la rivière Fiddich se jette dans la Spey. À quelques centaines de mètres, en direction de Dufftown, se dresse la célèbre Speyside Cooperage. En plein cœur du Speyside, à la confluence de la Fiddich et de la Spey, le village de Craigellachie pourrait constituer un bon camp de base pour celles et ceux qui voudraient visiter un maximum de distilleries : l’autre hôte de marque du village étant Macallan et une foule de distilleries presque aussi connues se répartissant dans un rayon de quelques kilomètres. 
Il est impossible de voir des fûts de whisky à Craigellachie puisque l’embouteillage sur place a été abandonné depuis 1995 ; les chais inutiles furent alors détruits, les quelques 2,8 millions de litres de nectar de Craigellachie allant mûrir ailleurs.

Speyside
The Speyside is a region that forms a core within the Highlands and that stretches along the Spey River. It goes even further, far beyond the lands of the Spey. Thus, the distilleries placed along Livet, Fiddich, Avon, Lossie, Findhorn and Deveron are also considered as a part of the Speyside. As it is not a geological unit, the boundaries of that region have never been set and sometimes, one could argue about the region from which a distillery comes from. According to the way we establish the boundaries, 63 of the 90 distilleries still in operation in Scotland are in the Speyside.
