Cragganmore distillery takes its rock face of a name from the mountain in whose shadow it sits. And this is a whisky with many high approaches and hidden valleys of flavour. Known as the most complex aroma on Speyside, it must also be one of the most delightful because the distillery can’t keep up with demand.

The complexity of Cragganmore makes it an out-of-the-ordinary choice for a second cask finish. However, port-wine casks provide the perfectly harmonious partner.

Serving Suggestion:
The deeply fruity, banana and cocoa flavours call for a neat serving, or perhaps a cube of ice.

Region The definition of a Speyside malt.
Appearance Warm gold.
Body Light to medium body, with rich undertones.
Nose Sweet (jelly-babies) and malty. Fruitier and juicier than the standard bottling. A hint of smoke.
Palate Firm, sweet, with smoky undertones and fruitiness. Malt, oak and smoke at the base. Intriguingly layered.
Finish Medium to long with fine, oaky expressions, from bananas and vanilla to cocoa. Much drier than it began.

Expert Reviews

Insights from some of the best in the business

Cragganmore is a deep malt but its richness is often obscured by its fruity sweetness. A period in port pipes allows this element to be amplified. The black currant is now fully fruited and acts as a flavor bridge while the meatiness that sits underneath and often unseen is revealed. Think cherry pipe tobacco, clove, and dark fruits. Sweet, but not too sweet, and always identifiably Cragganmore. For me, the pick of the bunch.
