  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    As far as I am
    concerned, this is a very nice Cragganmore and a swimmer at that.
    • Nose
      The nose is clean and
      malty. Reminds me a bit of pastry. Lemon tart. Pears and flowers, too. Some
      freshly cut grass. Rather mild, despite the almost 60%. After a few moments it
      becomes a bit darker in aroma. Loads of caramel and some butter. A touch bourbonny
      with a twig of mint. Diluted it becomes wrapped in citrusy notes.
    • Taste
      The attack is
      powerful and rather sharp. The lead is not for apricots, rhubarb and
      gooseberries. The mint becomes menthol, the lemon becomes lime, the pastry
      becomes nuts. This is quite nice, but let me add some water. That takes of the
      sharp edges and makes it somewhat sweeter (more honey and some toffee) and
      hence more palatable.
    • Finish
      Long, spicy finish.

    Pour water safely, it needs plenty of it to soften the sharpness of the dram. The flavour becomes much palatable then. Alas, the nose dissolves quite rapidly as well.
    • Nose
      Fresh, invigorating. Rather mild, it seems, for such a high alcohol strength. Yeasty, dusty, floral, sugary, sweet pastry (baklava maybe).
    • Taste
      Pungent. Grapefruit, menthol, spices, dried apricots, honey.
    • Finish
      Quite durable. Explosive (like a firecracker), peppery, sulfuric notes, cloves, paprika, cardomom, lemon rind.

    Number 7 of Tina's advent calendar 2010 I scored 40 points on this one because I guessed the distillery right.
