I have been diving into this one for a couple of times now to get notes on it. It has been a struggle a bit. But for me it comes down to this sadly. The nose gives me a sour malty note making me think of baby vomit. Soft vanilla and raisin notes underneath but it feels like there hasn't been much cask interaction.
On the palate I get the feeling at first of young and bit raw spirit. Raisin and vanilla again pop up between this unmatured spirit feeling. Malt, green grass, lemon, orange rind and red apples. A finish that is very short with some soft vanilla and honey sweetness on the teeth. Scoring me an 5,5 out of 10. Surprising this because I like much of the Craigellachie bottlings, official and independent.
