A complex Speyside single malt whiskey praised for its depth and complexity. John Smith designed Cragganmore distillery around unique flat-topped stills to deliver complex flavours. It is a true designer malt.
Serve on the rocks in a tumbler or tulip glass to concentrate its flavour, and add a splash of water to release more of its complexity.

A nose of sherry, brittle toffee, nuts, mild wood smoke, angelica and mixed peel. Elegant on the malty palate, with herbal and fruit notes, notably orange. Medium in length, with a drying, slightly smoky finish.

Balances richness and fragrance superbly.

Very accessible, and not given to grandiosity, but it's one of the Speyside greats. Good with some desserts. Try it with cassata.

Definitely one of my favourites in the range. You could explore the layers for along time.
Rob Allanson 2009, Whisky Magazine, Issue 79
The nose has honey, soft fruits and sweet spring meadow notes and is very inviting, and on the palate soft barley, summer fruits and a sweetness lead up to an almost tangy finish.
