Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Nose: An aromatic blast of citrus to begin with – orange and lemon oil – then soft aromas of toffee, roasted almonds and malted biscuits follow. Very clean and appetising, with a gentle floral character.
Palate: The fresh citrus notes continue on to the palate, joined by sweet toffee, malt and oat biscuits. Very clean and refreshing.
Finish: The gentle maltiness fades lightly.
Comment: A wonderful aperitif, this is subtle and moreish. A delight.

Tried a few single malts...Glenmorangie...Glenlivet....Highlnd Park...Laphoraig...Aberfeldy...this is my favorite so far...nice and smooth...warm finish. Definitely not my last bottle....
Really interesting Speyside scotch...for those who think Speyside scotches are "boring", this should do the trick in changing their mind. I imagine moonlit farm fields with this one...lots of hay, spice, sweet and pronounced, a scotch that stands out from other Speysiders.
A grand dram to warm the cockles.
A very easy to drink drop excellent value for money
excellent for relaxing ~fireside
Cragganmore 12 Year Old Single Malt, is my favourite single malt whisky! This is one for the true connoisseur of aged single malts. The warm flavours of slightly smoked wood and sweet Honey, linger on your taste buds with a lasting afterglow. Absolutely wonderful , with an appealing aroma.
I bought a small bottle of this as a taster when in Scotland as there were so many to choose from. It is smooth and slightly honeyed with an amazing array of complex flavours. I'm hooked. I never tried any of the others I loved this one so much.
I rate this malt better than others that cost over three times as much! Have done a blind taste test with this and several other quality single malts and cragganmore won by miles. Highly recommended for those with a sensitive palate. You might be able to get better, but you'll struggle at this end of the market. A excellent addition to any collection.
