"Awarded Whisky Advocate's 2014 Speyside Single Malt of the Year.

While most of Craigellachie?s production is still channeled into Dewar?s blends, there?s been consistent efforts to showcase the distillery via official bottlings. First came a 13 year old. The 17 year old and a 23 year old shortly followed. Then a duty free exclusive 19 and a world beating 31 year old. Part of Craigellachie?s charm is that it still uses old-fashioned worm tubs, said to add extra flavour while also resulting in whiskies that ?taste older than they are?. The house style is typically robust, spicy, warming and slightly oily in texture with citrus and American oak to the fore.

Like previous releases, the 17 Year Old comes handsomely packaged with a 'retro' label and an impressive heavy set bottle.

Other reviews? chocolate liquorice allsort! A tad oily and boiled vegetable. But enough malt to make a difference? almost like an oil slick in a sea of oak-splintered barley; technically falls flat on its face. Yet the whole is way better than the sum of its parts. 46% Alc./Vol. 88.5 points - Jim Murrays Whisky Bible 2017

Golden, lifted, and aromatic. The fleshy ripeness of the 13 year old is still there, but that little sulfur edge has now gone, revealing the ripe fruits massing underneath. Now you find pineapple and light chalk. The flowers have become daffodils and bluebells rather than lily, along with a soft, vanilla ice cream plumpness. Sweet and full, and just a shade lighter than the 13 year old. Muscly, but sweet; that?s the paradox of the Craigellachie character.
