.craigellachie – 13yo

46% abv, €45
single malt

Nose: sweet, malt, sweet white wine, fruit, sweet red apples, pear, raspberries, a hint of nuts, almonds, an even smaller hint of marzipan
Palate: smooth, easy going, sweet, vanilla, marshmallows, hints of marzipan, later some spiciness comes through, white pepper
Finish: not very long, sweet, vanilla, fruit, apples, pears, fresh red fruit, raspberries
Mark: +++/++ 
Conclusion: fairly nice. She shows a lot of body for a 13yo, (Gods, that sounds awkward), but she has a lot to offer. Looking forward to see her in a more mature form, and luckily, the whole range was sent to us so I’ll be doing some more of the family (awkwardness commences)…

.sample was sent to us for participation in a long gone twitter tasting, but arrived late.
