    [November, 2021] I had a dram during a FoSM club tasting and took no detailed notes because I found it not worthwhile to do so. This is sub-average modern stuff with fine heather-honey flavours (a Cragganmore trademark) in an otherwise unimpressive profile and (almost) non-existent mouthfeel and finish. Another one for the spittoon...

    This Whisky is very watery and has not really a finish. Nearly all taste disappears in your mouth after less than a minute. It smells very fruity and promising but the taste as such is not half that good and intense.

  3. Dr. J. Russell scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      Fresh grain, with floral and herbaceous notes.
    • Taste
      Light vanilla with citrus-fruity tones, medium-weight body and fine wood notes
    • Finish
      Medium length with spicy and fine vanilla notes

    The Cragganmore looks generally a bit flat and watery with a light body. I remembered it much better in the 1990s, and it was one of my favorite whiskys at the time. The quality seems to have decreased significantly (16.9.2010)
    • Nose
      68 68
      light, delicately malty, delicately flowery, not very distinctive
    • Taste
      70 70
      delicate malty, delicate hay, sweet like dried fig, cane sugar, honey with notes of heather, everlasting flowers, slightly woody
    • Finish
      68 68
      rather short and flat with aromas of straw, furry at the end
