Cragganmore Distillers Edition, 40%Cragganmore
The Distiller's Edition releases from select Diageo-owned distilleries offer a unique twist on some of our best loved single malts.
This youthful and juicy Cragganmore starts its ageing in a selection of American oak casks before a finishing period in ex-port wine pipes. Cragganmore's honeyed and full bodied character combines beautifully with aromas of rose, turkish delight, red fruits and soft tannins coming from its port finish.
Cragganmore distillery was built for distilling legend, John Smith, in 1869-70, at Ballindalloch, then rebuilt in 1901 by his son, Gordon. Although a top component of Scotch blends, Cragganmore is phenomenal as a single malt, and epitomises the gentle Speyside character.
A very easy-drinking and summery dram.
