I have several hand-blown bottles of the Bowmore Bicentennial edition, complete with the wooden case. It is one of the finest whiskies I have ever tasted but it seems too valuable for me to drink at t...

Whiskies (10)

Cadenhead's Craigellachie Glenlivet 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.30%
7 Saved by the water and though too insubtantial to get a high mark would make a good aperitif.

Craigellachie 2002 8 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 60.30%
6 Attractive enough but lacks complexity. There again, it's only 8yo.

Craigellachie Hotel Craigellachie 1982, 2003 Single cask bottling, 21 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.70%
7 I hope we will be seeing a little more of Craigellachie.

Craigellachie Hotel Glenfarclas 2001 Single Cask Bottling
Single Malt - Scotland - 51.20%
8 In each corner, a fighter rather than a boxer. Not much refinement, but plenty of punch.

Craigellachie Hotel Glenlivet 2002 Single Cask Bottling
Single Malt - Scotland - 59.10%
8 Very sherryish, but just enough of the Glenlivet's fruity-flowery character sings through. Beautifully judged.

Dewar Rattray Craigellachie 15 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.90%
8 A model of balance and elegance. A first class Speysider.

Dewar Rattray Craigellachie 15 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 59.90%
7 On top of a maturation in poor wood, seems to have undergone problems at distillation. Disappointing.

Dewar Rattray Craigellachie 1989 16 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.70%
7 The different elements haven't been pulled together. A better cask would have given some order and control.

Douglas of Drumlanrig Craigellachie 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 The palate confirms the nose with dominant oak. Water tends to tone the wood down a little. It lacks balance for me. But those who like oakiness will enjoy.

The Wee Dram Craigellachie 15 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 Metallic flavour seems dominant, and the rest doesn't hold together.
