Craigellachie 13 Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Image courtesy Dewar's/Bacardi.Part of the new range of official distillery bottlings from Craigellachie introduced in 2014, with a light, grassy, and malty nose. Notes of lemongrass, sandalwood, ginger, and a hint of pine sap create a complex and well-balanced aroma. The taste is tart and fruity with lemon pepper, orange and mango notes balanced by coconut, vanilla, and crystallized ginger. The finish is dry and slightly astringent at first before turning juicy and fruity with lemongrass, coconut, and vanilla notes. Very nice. (November, 2014)
