Glen Craig (See Glen Burgie) Speyside Single Malt Whisky
There is not actually a distillery called Glen Craig. This is very rare single malt which was in fact distilled in the Lomond Stills at Glen Burgie distillery (see above) between 1956 and 1981. Glen Craig single malt whisky was in fact named after the then Ballantine’s director William Craig.
Approximately, only about 7000 bottles of Glen Craig have ever been released for sale ranging from a 19 year old to a 30 year old. Nearly all of these have been bottled by Cadenheads, Duncan Taylor or Gordon and Macphail.
Some say the best of these was the 19 year old single malt whisky bottled by Cadenheads, but as they say it is all a matter of opinion. All the other Glen Craig output was used for blending mainly Ballantine’s Blended Scotch Whisky.
Taste: Heavy, Oakish, Sweet with a touch of Fruit.
