Cragganmore 1999 / 20 Year Old / Special Releases 2020
Product Description

A dark, sweet and lightly smoky from Cragganmore, its entry in the Diageo Special Releases 2020 line-up. There's no actual smoke used during the making of this whisky, but there's a definitely a charred note running through it, thanks to the use of freshly charred hogsheads in its maturation. However, it's appeared in the whisky, the char compliments the classic Cragganmore character.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange

    • Nose

      Rich butterscotch and barrel char. Notes of roasted banana and shortbread develop, with sweet apple and poached pear not far behind. Polished oak and sweet, waxy notes develop with hints of sultanas and dried apricot. Brown sugar follows.

    • Palate

      The butterscotch of the nose becomes burnt, with bitter sugar notes balanced by sweet polished oak, chocolatey mocha coffee and milk chocolate. Raisins and sultanas emerge with a fleeting hint of menthol, before dried apricot, dried apple and liquorice take over.

    • Finish

      Sweetness fades to levae balanced char, forest pools and stewed apples.

    • Comment

      There’s definitely a char note here, but not one that I see as being properly smoky. It could be the freshly charred casks allowing the spirit deeper access into the wood to pull out darker flavours, it could be auto-suggestion. Either way, it’s quite nice.
