Single Malt Scotch Whisky distilled at Craigellachie Distillery

Cask Type: 1st Fill Palo Cortado Barrique
1 of 298 bottles
Aroma: A nose of burnt orange, pink grapefruit with a freshness of lemongrass and squeezed lemon. Sweeter, juicer fruits like cantalope melon, banana, red apples, grapes and berries become more apparent with the addition of water.
Taste: Strong citric flavours come through on the palate, grapefruit is prominent again along with singed lemon meringue pie. A fantastic combination of sour, bitter and sweet - again with more juicer fruits coming through with water
Comment: A truly unique whisky with an array of flavours not usually found in single malts. The Palo Cortado sherry finish brings a great layer of added depth and complexity.
