Craigellachie 13 Bas-Armagnac Finish. Image courtesy John Dewar & Sons/Bacardi. This expression takes Craigellachie’s regular 13-year-old single malt and finishes it for a year in Bas-Armagnac French Oak casks. The nose has touches of apple cobbler, cinnamon, pineapple, and a hint of caramel. The taste is spicy and vibrant with notes of cinnamon, caramel, grilled pineapple, toasted oak, and honey. The finish is long and subtle with hints of wood smoke and red apples. Very nice! (July, 2022)
