Released October 2018, unusually, Craigellachie 51 was not bottled in a fancy crystal decanter or given a lofty price tag. Indeed, it was bottled to be given away over a 12-month period following its release at tastings in London, Australia, South Africa and USA. Don’t miss out. Click read more. Read more

Clear, golden amber.
Pineapple, butterscotch, red apple, linseed oil-rubbed chamois leather with faint earthy peatiness and liquorice.
Assertive cinnamon spiced oak offsets rich pineapple and green apple fruitiness with pleasing liquorice and coal tar.
Coal tar, liquorice and menthol.
Wonderfully fruity for such an old whisky with pineapple and green apple. This fruitiness brilliantly sits alongside distinctive notes of coal tar and liquorice. Be sure to visit craigellachie.com/bar51 for a chance to try.
