So I’m pleased to have been introduced to a number of new whiskies that I’ve not heard of before. This doesn’t mean they’re not well known particularly – just that I don’t know them!
Today’s whisky is a Speyside whisky that appears to be based out of Craigellachie Hotel. A bit of research shows that indeed it is; it’s a blend of whiskies named by the hotel. It has a rich copper colour too, reddish with a mild nose on it.
At first taste it’s got an equally mild flavour, with a bourbon edge to it – definitely a sense of wood to it. It’s not bad, but a bit bland, really – ultimately a bit missable. 6/10.
