The complexity of Cragganmore prescribed an out-of-the-ordinary choice for a secondary cask finish. Double matured in Port-wine casks successfully provides the perfectly harmonious partner.
The mouth is swamped with fruity flavours of cherries and oranges leading to rich tastes of Port-wine and malt, with lingering smoke. Long finish is breathtaking, with a toffee-sweet start and a dry slightly smoky finish. Intriguingly multi-layered malt.
Cragganmore Single Malt Whiskey
John Smith established Cragganmore Distillery in 1869 in the heart of Scotland's Speyside whiskey region. This is a malt whiskey distillery equipped with four very short stills and is one of the few Scottish malt whiskey distilleries that continues to cool its new spirit in traditional worm tubs. The few distillery bottlings including Cragganmore 12 Year Old and Distillers Edition are well enhanced by those of independent bottlers.
