- The Best of Speyside
With herbal, floral and woody notes and honey, vanilla and sandalwood flavours, Cragganmore 12 Year Old is the most ‘easy-drinking' of all of the complex Cragganmore malts.
Established in 1869, in an area with a reputation for fruity, delicate whiskies, Cragganmore's heritage remains key to its complexity, with two flat-topped stills dating from 1901 still in use.
The 12 Year Old is best appreciated over ice in a tumbler to concentrate its delicate flavours. The Distillers Edition is aged twice and it's this that results in its distinctive deep fruity, banana and cocoa flavours.
Cragganmore, founded by the legendary John Smith 1869, is for many the definitive Speyside malt. For malt whisky writer Michael Jackson, it has "the most complex aroma of any malt... astonishingly fresh and delicate".
Back in the 1920s this was voted the finest of all Scottish Malt Distillers' malts by their blenders, being titled "A1" for blending.
On tasting it, it's not hard to see what those blenders saw. Mature and well balanced, with an astonishingly fragrant aroma, the slight fruitiness on the palate is overlaid with sweet, smoky notes with hints of sandalwood.
Complexity married to such refinement is not easily found. This is truly a Classic Malt -still the leading Speyside that John Smith set out to create.
A long finish packed with hints of smoky sweetness brings this delightful, refined experience - so accessible, yet so rewarding, gently to a close.
Cragganmore is the distinguished Speyside destination on a journey around Scotland's six malt whisky making regions. The other Classic Malts are:
