Speyside Cask Strength Whisky: Probably the heart of the malt industry, with distilleries almost shoulder to shoulder along the Spey and its tributaries. Speysides can be huge and sherry wooded, with smokiness, great length and complexity. Often the nose is enough to entrance. These malts have had no water added since being placed into cask following-distillation. Their strength can vary with time in the cask due to being stored in either a dry or a damp atmosphere. Cask strength Malts have greater concentration than standard.

Sorry, no image currently available
for the Cragganmore whisky.

Category: Speyside Cask Strength Whisky

Age: 21year

Year: 1989

Alcohol by Volume: 56%

Distiller: Distillery

Bottler notes:
APPEARANCE: Bright pale amber. Good beading. NOSE: A mellow nose, with soft, malty fruit loaf and dry marzipan, or almond oil. Plenty of fruit too, with a faint but appetising fruity acidity against a flinty backdrop; fresh grape, apple and pear or tinned peach, banana and maraschino cherry. After a while thereís a lighter, earthy, more herbal note (dried basil?). Water softens and cleans things, raising the fragrant scents, now accompanied by saddle soap. This develops towards waxy fruit; as in a cherry sponge cake, or juicy fruit gum. BODY: Rich at cask strength, softer with water. PALATE: Smooth and sweet, but with light acidity lending freshness, so from the off itís slightly mouth-drying and cooler than you might expect. Charred, with liquorice root and cinnamon in mulled wine. Overall, clean and clearly structured, with a slight mineral tang. Softer with water: now waxy notes and a vanilla egg custard-sweetness are offset by clove and hints of wood. FINISH: Medium length and warming, with some gingery spiciness. Smoother with water and drying, herbal, almost bitter, until marzipan returns in the aftertaste.

The house style for the Cragganmore distillery is: Austere, stonily dry, aromatic. After dinner.
