A lively example of Cragganmore at natural strength, with considerable complexity, which benefits from a little water.

An appetising Cragganmore, with the expected complex aromas and smooth Speyside character, while the rich, sweet taste is also unusually intense and wood-spiced after part-ageing in new oak casks.

 

Flavour Profile: Nose

A mellow nose, with quite some prickle. Deeply wooded, the aroma is complex, with fruity top notes of ripe pear, Ogen melon and green banana, soft leather notes, on a faint base of sanded hardwood. The aromas are sweeter than in regular expressions, yet with savoury undertones.

Flavour Profile: Palate

At natural strength, again the influence of the long years in wood is felt. The texture is creamy-smooth, while the taste is rich and sweet, though not as sweet as the nose may suggest. That richness is soon delightfully balanced by a drying and savoury mid-palate

Flavour Profile: Finish

Long, velvet-smooth, dry and chili-spiced. With water, smoother and longer; sweet-spicy, still with a lingering and now more mellow chilli pepper aftertaste.
