Craigellachie 11 year old (2010) PX Sherry Finish
This superb Shingle Malt Scotch whisky from the legendary Craigellachie distillery was bottled by Morrison Scotch Whisky Distillers (Morrison & MacKay formally) as a part of their Strictly Limited range of whiskies. A luxurious PX Sherry Butt finish on this 11 year old gives this the velvety finish you would expect with dried fruits, dark caramel and mocha followed by meaty malty notes.
Craigellachie distillery profile
Craigellachie distillery was founded in 1891 during the whisky boom of the 19th century. The distillery has produced a distinct whisky that has been popular in blends. In 1998 the distillery was acquired by John Dewar and Sons (a subsidiary of Bacardi). These days there is an official release from the distillery. Previously only independent single malt releases were available. This distillery produces whisky that ends up, for the most part, in the Dewars blends.
