We are delighted to help launch a new series of Old Particular Single Cask Limited Edition bottlings for 2019, inspired by the four Elements of Fire, Air, Earth and Water.
The series launches with the “Fire” bottling which, very aptly, is a mocha-spiced Craigellachie 12 Years Old from a well-fired and characterful Sherry butt. All the Old Particular Elements Single Casks are bottled at natural cask strength and are proudly offered without colouring or chill-filtration.
The packaging for these specialist bottlings depicts an intricate illustration of each of the four Elements.
Craigellachie 12 year old distilled in June 2006 and bottled December 2018.
Only 285 bottles worldwide, charged from a Sherry Butt and bottled at natural cask strength.
Nose : Bursts with rich chocolate / mocha and honeycomb with a touch of vanilla.
Flavour : Really warming - treacle toffee, all spice, charred wood and golden barley.
Finish : Deliciously long with a leathery quality, cocoa, orange zest and cinnamon.
