Craigellachie 2006 Celebration of the Cask Review

Hi everyone,

Won't be able to post for a while I'm getting married on Saturday.
I know, I know. Congratulations, commiserations, etc.
So this is the last one for a couple of weeks. One from my Scotland stag that I'd managed to miss out.

Craigellachie 2006 Celebration of the Cask 57%
Nose: Malty, nutty, oaky and musty all wrapped into one. Nice balance.
Taste: Intense, soft arrival, then building malt and oily spice. Black pepper. Very powerful and a little too spicy.
Finish: Long length. Black pepper and more oils
Bottled for 10th anniversary of the whisky shop Dufftown. That nose really doesn't give away the powerful and spicy taste, but really good one.

Thanks for reading!
