The Craigellachie 37 Year Old was distilled in 1984, then set to mature in refill casks. It was finished in first-fill bourbon casks.

The distiller’s notes show that the whisky has aromas of pineapple tarte-tatin and custard on the nose, balanced with banana bread and soft cereals. The palate offers hints of soft fruits and almonds. The finish is long and indulgent.

“Craigellachie has always been a bold and brooding malt and this finish in first-fill bourbon casks elevates the signature style of this wonderfully eccentric distillery,” said Ignacio Vazquez, marketing for Bacardi, in a prepared statement. “First-fill casks are the most active type and result in quicker maturation, adding a very important contribution to the final flavor of the whisky.”

The Craigellachie 37 Year Old Bourbon Cask has a suggested retail price of $3,245 for a 70cl bottle.
