Hayden Remnant reviews this month's Whisky - Craigellachie 13 yo Single Malt.
Colour - a pale golden which bodes well.
Nose - certainly smells like Scotch!
Palate - slightly sweet with light smoke and peat.
Water - a dash softens it and lengthens the palate.
Finish - pleasant warmth and quite mellow. Does not disappoint.
From the distiller:
In 1891 a Whisky expert noted that Craigellachie represented a style of Whisky seldom met with now. Today they still use old-fashioned worm tubs to cool their spirit and bestow it with extra flavour, creating a dram to rival Whiskies twice its age.
A worm tub is a long copper tube, sitting in a large tank of cold water, which snakes back and forth and gradually gets narrower. Craigellachie is one of the few distilleries still benefitting from this traditional technique.
