Craigallachie Single Malt Scotch Whisky Tasting Note;

On the nose it is spiced and raisiny - with an interesting richness akin to freshpeaches in a wood carry box.

Paletewise it is full and sweetly barley'd - peppery - with more (now macerated) soft dark fruit very much evident.

All this leads to a considerably drier finish with hints oftobacco, ginger and nutmeg.
