Cragganmore 12 Years Old Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Volume: 700ml ABV: 40% Age: 12 Years Old Country: Scotland
This distillery was first opened in 1869 by John Smith who was probably the most experienced distiller of his day. John Smith had been manager at Macallan and Glenlivet distilleries so he had an abundance of knowledge. This distillery produces one of the most complex Speyside single malts and is a well known classic name in the industry. The distillery is however one of the smallest and this means they need to produce spirit seven days a week to keep up with demand. The stills at the distillery are flat topped stills and the wooden condenser is traditionally made which contributes to the spirits complexity.
With this whisky you will find heather and wonderful subtle fruits with floral notes. Lots of honey chestnuts, almonds and walnuts, a wonderful whisky especially for the budding whisky enthusiast. Ballindalloch, on the banks of the River Spey legendary salmon river, is for many the home of the definitive Speyside single malt. Hugely complex, rich with layers of flavour and a whiff of smoke in the finish. Matured mostly using refill Sherry casks for no less than 12 years. Bottled at 40% abv.
Our Tasting Notes
Nose: Smoked hazelnuts combine with freshly cut grass and aromatic Scottish heather. Tropical fruits and honey sweetness.
Palate: Mangos, nectarines and plums share the space with toasted nuts and red summer berries. The honey sweetness is subtle and combines the rich oily palate.
Finish: Subtle smoke is simply superb with spice and stone fruits.
