Cragganmore

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Cragganmore 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 It's worth taking the trouble.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Cragganmore 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 Very accessible, and not given to grandiosity, but it's one of the Speyside greats. Good with some desserts. Try it with cassata.

Cragganmore 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
A very fine,and underrated mid-weight malt.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Cragganmore 17 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.50%
8 Give this lots of time. Do so and you will be richly rewarded.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Cragganmore 1984 Distillers Edition, Ruby Port Finish, 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 Connoisseurs might miss the austerity of the original – or enjoy the added layer of fruity, winey, sweetness.

Cragganmore 1989 21 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.00%
7 I'd want more for a 21Year Old. Disappointing.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Cragganmore 29 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 52.50%
8 At this age, more complex and elegant than ever. No obvious sherry.

Cragganmore Distillers Edition 1993 Port Wine
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
The finish accentuates elements which are already in the whisky without dominating and obscuring the distillery character.

Master of Malt Cragganmore 20 Years Old, 1991
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.20%
7 An unexpectedly light (but well balanced) Cragganmore.

Rare Auld Cragganmore 18 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.30%
8 Deep and rich. The sherry has overwhelmed the distillery character. But a beautiful oaky expression. And a characterful profile.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Rare Auld Cragganmore 1985 25 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 48.30%
8 The nose is pure confectionary, while the palate introduces a more masculine note.

Signatory Cragganmore 1989
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.70%
7 Not very old, but was the cask a little tired?

Wemyss Vintage Malts Lemon Grove 1989 (Cragganmore)
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 A cool summer dessert that acts as an ideal wake-me-up.
