Originally launched in 1988 as part of Diageo’s Classic Malts Selection range, this 12yo from the Cragganmore distillery in Speyside is one of the very few official releases from this distillery that has become fairly hard-to-find in recent years. Predominantly matured in ex-bourbon casks with a portion of ex-sherry.
Nose: A combination of sweet floral fragrances, riverside herbs and flowers with some honey and vanilla.
Palate: A strong malty taste with hints of sweet wood smoke and sandalwood.
Finish: A long, malt-driven finish with light smoke and hints of sweetness.
