At 29 years old, this is by some distance the oldest official bottling of Cragganmore that has ever come to the market. A long-time favourite here at TWE, this is also the top-ranked Cragganmore on Serge Valentin's Whiskyfun.

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Nose: Fragrant, grassy, herbal, dry and sweet.Waxed wood and polished leather. Burnt sugar, like crème brulée.With water, linseed oil aromas.

    Body: Soft, slightly oily, dry.

    Palate: Dry; thyme and pepper, also sweet; liquorice and orange blossom. Drinks well at full strength; some acidity, some nuttiness.

    Finish: Medium to long, dry, flowery, cleansing. Pleasant nutty aftertaste.
  • Tasting Notes from Whiskyfun (Serge Valentin)

    Nose: very flowery and very fruity, which is incredible considering its age. This one is not for the sherryheads! Lots of tropical fruits: pineapple, guava, tons of light breakfast honey. Extremely fresh! Develops on melon and peach, freshly squeezed oranges… A nectar. Whiffs of white pepper from the wood. What a perfect balance! Hints of peat?
     
    Mouth: stunning attack on fresh fruit salad and white pepper. Bold, rich, yet clean and fresh. Lots of honey, fresh fruits (melon, pear)… Some oaky notes too (tannins, pepper, vanilla, cinnamon). This one really proves that there’s life without some heavy sherry in Speyside. Long, beautifully balanced finish on pollen, and white pepper. An old ‘straight shooter’ that, once again, shows that there isn’t only sherry and/or peat in life. I like it a lot! 90 points

    I got a bottle here in Spain. Incredible dram, expensive, but by all means it's worth the price. Just excellent, the notes just as those described by Serge. I give it a 93 points!
