Included in this Cragganmore Bundle is:

1 of Dalwhinnie 2020 Distillers Edition Single Malt Scotch Whisky, 70cl
Smooth aromatic heather and honey sweetness, Dalwhinnie Distillers Edition is a welcoming Highland single malt. Each Distillers Edition expression undergoes a second (or double) maturation in casks that have previously held a fortified wine. Its sweetness makes it a great accompaniment to desserts such as creme brulee.

1 of Cragganmore The Distillers Edition 2020 Single Malt Scotch Whisky, 70cl
The Distillers Edition is double-matured in Port cask wood, expertly chosen to marry succulence and depth with the signature malty, smoky flavours, and finesse of CRAGGANMORE. It has a deep-fruited sweetness, rich in complexity, and a drying oak-smoked finish.

1 of Talisker 2020 Distillers Edition Single Malt Scotch Whisky, 70cl
Every sip is a taste of the Isle of Skye itself, one of the most remote, rugged, yet beautiful landscapes in Scotland. The Talisker Distillers Edition, an annual release that is double matured for up to 6 months in ex-amoroso sherry casks, achieves bitter-sweet harmony as its crisp peat softens, not to pepper, but to rich, sweet, juicy fruit.

1 of Lagavulin 2020 Distillers Edition Single Malt Scotch Whisky, 70cl
The smoky, peated Lagavulin is seen as the ultimate expression of the Islay region. Lagavulin Distiller’s Edition is double-matured in Pedro Ximenez cask wood, a wine derived from intensely flavoured sun-dried grapes, expertly selected for its raisiny sweetness to magically accentuate and deepen every aspect of the intense, rich character of Lagavulin.

1 of Oban 2020 Distillers Edition Single Malt Scotch Whisky, 70cl
Oban Single Malt Scotch Whisky Distillers Edition 2020 has been double-matured for 14 years in ex-bodega Montilla Fino cask wood for a rich fruitiness and maritime flavours that bond with the fresh, sweet aromas and tastes of the regular release in an explosive, rich and deep expression of Oban. Limited quantities of this Highland Malt are available worldwide.

Region A roaring bonfire from the coast of Islay.
Appearance Deep amber gold.
Body Full, rich bodied.
Nose Intensely flavoured, peat smoke with iodine and seaweed and a rich, deep sweetness.

Expert Reviews

Insights from some of the best in the business

The best nose so far, seaweed, salt, cherry. What a comfort whisky for that miserable cold day, gently lingering with a gentle drying but the flavours keep coming back. Fantastic!

Sukhinder Singh 2011, Whisky Magazine, Issue 95, p.103

Rich, chewy, slightly oily texture. Deep peat, thicks smoke, iodine, brine, charcoal, seaweed, tea (Earl Grey, Lapsang Souchong), and the aromas of a summer barbeque. Vanilla and light caramel soften the intensity, while subtle citrus fruit teases. Powerful, yet polished and seamless. After all these years, this whisky is still one of the finest standard-issue peaty, smoky whiskies!

John Hansell, 2011, The Whisky Advocate Fall 2011, p.96

The smoke hides behind dried oak tree bark and sultanas and the palate with a flavour of cherry drop sweets and black tea.

Joel Harrison 2012, Whisky Magazine, Issue 103, p.103

A true classic in every sense that offers breathtaking depth.

Jim Murray 1999, Whisky Magazine, Issue 6

Lagavulin is a classic example of how smoke isn’t a blunt instrument that covers everything in a fog, but an element that works with all the flavors produced in distillation and maturation. Lagavulin isn’t ‘smoky,’ its peat moves into a weird territory of Lapsang Souchong tea and pipe tobacco, fishboxes and kippers. It smells of laurel and light cereal, but is always sweet. The palate shows more creosote, with hints of kelp and a little touch of iodine. Complex.

Dave Broom, 2012, The Whisky Advocate Summer 2012

A monster truck nose with rich smoke, lychee and unripe pear, with prickly smoke and banana skin notes on the palate, and a superb long dark chocolate and smoky finish.

Dominic Roskrow, Malt Whisky Yearbook 2015, p.149
