    I never understood why the late Michael Jackson called this the most complex aroma of any malt in his earlier Malt Whisky Companions. Now I finally understand. This standard OB Cragganmore from the late 1980's is very very good. much better than the standard OB of today.
    • Nose
      Very fragrant and fresh. Grassy. Flowery notes of thyme and Heather. Also lavender and vanilla. Even hints of smoke. Complex
    • Taste
      Amazingly round and full bodied for its 40%. Even waxy. Polished oak. Pear drops. Nutiness and some pepper.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Ginger and liquorice. Later on it becomes salty. Very well balanced.
