Craigellachie 2011 11YO 65.4% (IB, MOM-Master of Malt)

Updated: Apr 9, 2023


Sour plum, bold, sweet and peppery.

Nice scale: 86/100

Release No.71, Craigellachie sherry butt single cask. Distilled in 2011 and bottled in 2022 at a cask strength of 65.4% (Juicy!).The outturn of 763 bottles.

Nowadays, I rarely get turned on, but hey, this is 65.4%!

Nose: Sour plum, hints of sweetness with malt hidden underneath and the smell of wet woods. (I can recommend you to dip a bit on the back of your hand and rub it, you will feel a more robust malt flavour)

Mouth: The entrance felt like a drip of honey, smooth and creamy. Bold in the mouth, then sweetness starts to express with peppery spice.

Finish: Like eating popcorn and some apples at the very, very last.

This 11 Year does surprise me; kind of well structured for its age, bold and not so young. Layers of flavour are expressed in the mouth. Fun fact, I added some water to clean the glass before going on to the next dram, and with water, it tastes like Milo.

You can get at MOM or try a dram at HERE
