Review and Tasting

Sampled on 18/02/2017

Appearance

Clear, mid golden amber.

Aroma

Barbecue charcoal, buttery malted barley, dried pineapple and French banquette crust with faint sulphur and clove spice.

Taste

Slightly sweet, vanilla, coal dust and new leather with clove and cinnamon spice. Sweeter and more fruity with water.

Aftertaste

Faint smoke and sulphur – match box striking strip emerges in the long charcoal and coal dust finish.

Overall

Age and generous fruit tames Graigellachie, making this big malt both approachable and highly desirable.
