So I’m at Cadenhead’s recommended bar, having a nice dram, enjoying myself, and I ask them for a recommendation, which is really the only thing to do when presented with that much whisky.
The bartender (great guy) mentioned I should go for one of the IB, as they were specific to the bar. Which was awesome. He picked out his favourite, let me have a wiff, and I ordered a dram of Craigellachie-Glenlivet 18 Cadenhead Small Batch.
I honestly didn’t know anything about this distillery before I tried some. Reading now, it’s currently owned by Bacardi and hasn’t done much at all. They seem to keep their heads down and stay out of the way. Even with their own release in 2004 where they no longer carried the “Flora & Fauna” name, they didn’t really do much else. Now you can mostly find them used by IB.
