Cragganmore 29 Years Old 1986 Speyside Scotch Whisky (Adelphi)
Volume: 700ml ABV: 59.2% Age: 29 Years Old Country: Scotland
This Cragganmore will take you to places you have never been and help you share great memories with good company. I’m not sure my tasting notes will hit the mark with this as it was just wonderful and most of us in the room were giving different tasting notes at different times. It was to be blunt a very special moment in whisky tasting.
This whisky has been created by maturing Cragganmore single malt in a very high quality Bourbon barrel for 29 years. It is limited to 166 bottles worldwide and once it is gone the memory of it will last forever but only to the fortunate that experienced its brilliance.
Our Tasting Notes
Nose: Think of Cragganmore and how herbal and floral it can be, now multiply this by 10. It is extremely fresh. The sweetness is delivered in honey, the best you can buy. Freshly cooked sponge with a drizzle of golden syrup. We asked for vanilla and we got vanilla in the form of butter smooth icing with sprinkles of coconut and cooked pieces of pineapple.
Palate: Wait for it. The fruit that this whisky expresses is balanced extremely well. It has perfectly ripe apples and pears, the vanilla is what you’d expect from a creme brulee or a perfectly created vanilla ice cream. The smell of coconut is now transformed into a Bounty ice cream but not as sweet. There’s Masterchef made toffee sprinkles teasing the tips of your tongue as the oak coats the mouth. The herbs are fine and compliment the fruits and the sweetness. It’s fresh and reminiscent of a summers day.
Finish: There is a long floral finish, with slightly burnt toffee melting on the tongue and some delicious oak. This is a memorable whisky
