EXCEPTIONAL SPEYSIDE SINGLE MALT WHISKY AGED IN OLOROSO SHERRY OAK CASKS Creag Dhu is an exceptionally smooth Speyside single malt Scotch whisky bottled at 40.4% abv. Softly aged from 8 to 12 years in the finest Oloroso sherry oak casks, Creag Dhu is rich, spicy and delicate. Non-peated with a warm and exceptionally long finish. The whisky is intrinsically connected to nature, the peatlands and the historic mountain that it is named after. TASTING NOTES Medium-bodied, with notes of date and walnut cake, spicy caramel, Oloroso sherry, and hints of earthy forest. A light base of malt, with toffee apple and a touch of smoke. The Mountain of Creag Dhu Creag Dhu (The Black Rocky Hill) is the iconic mountain by Strathmashie Distillery overlooking the River Spey in the Cairngorms National Park; steeped in ancient history and surrounded by beautiful and wild peatlands. The History At the geographical centre of Scotland, Creag Dhu has for centuries been an important meeting place of the clans. Its cliffs hid Bonnie Prince Charlie after the battle of Culloden and until recently have sheltered a long and colourful heritage of illicit distilling. Saving the Peatlands Every bottle of Creag Dhu donates money to preserving the peatlands of Scotland, nature’s great carbon store to protect against global warming. The peatlands of Scotland with their golden eagles, red deer, plant life and other diverse wildlife are one of the last great wildernesses and nature reserves of Europe. A carbon offset certificate, created in conjunction with the Peatland Code is included with every bottle. This offsets 5kg of carbon dioxide, the equivalent of; 2,610 light bulb hours 1295 smartphone charges or 1,140 km travelled on the Eurostar train.
