Single malt Glencraig was produced in Glenburgie Distillery from 1958 to 1981 and used exclusively for blending.
It was distilled in lomond still, an experimental cross between a column and a pot still. It had the bulb shaped bottom of the standard copper pot still and a thick, wide neck resembling a coffee can, which housed three rectifying plates that could be opened in varying degrees from a horizontal to the vertical position, increasing or decreasing the reflux action. Glencraig 1975, part of Gordon & MacPhail Rare Old range (RO/12/02), contains whisky aged in refill American oak hogshead. Released in 2012 with an outrun of 170 bottles.
Nose: sweet and fruity, apples, gooseberries, orange and lemon peel, lemon grass, hints of violets, vanilla, white pepper and charred oak.
Palate: lots of vanilla and caramel, orange zest, lemon tart, pepper, nutmeg, hints of cloves and cocoa, touch of cedar wood.
Finish: medium long, oaky, apples, pears, vanilla and milk chocolate.
