The Mossburn Vintage Casks range are a collection of Single Malt Scotch Whiskies each issuing from a strictly limited and select batch of casks. Each numbered release will only ever yield a finite number of bottles. While this means that we can never replicate the particular character of this Single Malt, it also offers an opportunity to sample what we believe to be an exceptional example of the whisky made by one of Scotland’s most distinguished distilleries.
Not the most picturesque of distilleries, Craigellachie Distillery is however ideally situated at the fork of the Spey and Fiddich Rivers. Its spirit is weighty even at birth from the long fermentation and adds floral and fruit weight as it matures. This bottling from refill hogsheads offers pungent fresh cereal with white pepper/gunsmoke notes, following up with boiled sweets, toffee malt and finishing with a little kick of fire.
