Glencraig

Built: 1810. Current Owner: Pernod Ricard. House style: Few bottlings exist, but the Lomond process produced an oily, fruitier whisky than Glenburgie. Glencraig was produced at Glenburgie distillery using Lomond stills between 1958 and 1981. These stills were removed and it is unlikely that the scotch will be ever made again, so the existing bottlings may become quite valuable. The spirit was named after Willie Craig the Ballantines director of Highland Malt Distilleries, making him one of very few people to have a single malt whisky named after them.


The nose is light, fruity and gently malty with subtle buttercream vanilla. There’s a slightly piney and lightly solvent note, which kind of slides over to shiso after a minute. There’s a light dusting of white pepper as well. The palate is moderately heavy, malty and gentle all around. As from the nose, you get some light vanilla, moderate heat brought by the pepper notes, and mint and shiso notes. The whisky finishes quite quickly and is mostly malt and gentle spice, with a tail end of light mint. This one is just a simple, easy-drinking, enjoyable whisky.
