Craigellachie 7yr Provenance (Douglas Laing) Review

Craigellachie 7yr Provenance (Douglas Laing) A chance encounter met with me being able to try this lovely craigellachie 7 year old from Douglas Laing's stylish new look Provenance range.

I really like craigellachie, it has those meaty notes that I enjoy from Mortlach and Springbank but also has a gentle sweeter side that I really enjoy.

Worm tubs and a deliberately sulphured barley give this its meatiness and the speyside heritage helps with its softer side.

For the money this is fabulous bang for your buck and one you should definitely be looking out for.

Pick one up directly from Douglas Laing's Online Store or your local specialist

Thanks to Rick from Douglas Laing for the sample.

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

There's a real meatiness in here with cold cuts, iberico ham, engine oil and then a really sweet juicy sherry coated fruit note, lots of figs and damson jam, a little balsamic vinegar and sherry vinegar in the background

Palate

This is really light but grows initially sweet fleshy fruits hints of nectarine and fig then it goes richer and more meaty, beef jerky and iberico Ham, touches of resting steaks and then a little dirty engine oil

Finish

Sweet, light then grows meatier and with a hint of pepper
