Dave Broom

Nose
Dry oak,dry leaves. Less fresh fruit and more fruit jam. More savoury but equally clean. Good layering and no loss of complexity. Rum and raisin.
Palate
Softer and sweeter but also spicier: turmeric and coriander before a shift mid-palate into the fruit dominated realm.
Finish
Sloes and blackberries with a little nut. No obvious smoke.
Comment
The finish accentuates elements which are already in the whisky without dominating and obscuring the distillery character.

Rob Allanson

Nose
Bags of sweetness,fresh baked cherry pie,the oak has taken a back seat.
Palate
Fruit has moved into a more stewed state,still has plenty of sweetness,but more richness. The smoke is just there at the back.
Finish
Long and very warming.
Comment
The portwood has worked well here, enhancing the classic Cragganmore traits. Summer would be perfect for this whisky.
