    [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 is the standard bottling of the distillery.
    • Nose
      Fresh, mild, exotic fruits, peach, citrus, honey, floral notes.
    • Taste
      Citrus, light fruits, becoming malty, vanilla.
    • Finish
      Finish medium-long, malty, sweet with a hint of chocolate.

    Complex aroma and easy to drink. Not Strong with the 40% alkohol but feel is good and fresh to drink. Good whisky for all days, for me :-)
    • Nose
      Dried apricots with creamy rapeseed honey and fresh alcohol.
    • Taste
      Very pleasant and complex taste, mild and sweet fruitiness.
    • Finish
      Not too long but convincing finish.

    Not bad whisky, albeit too sweet for my taste but i guess that goes with being Speyside. In any case, well matured but really needs higher ABV cause one drinks it with no effect at all.

    i take a different view to most people on here, I think this is a decent dram.
    As always there are batch variations, all I know I tasted this from a very recent bottle so could be a 2020 or 21.
    The mouthfeel is quite chewy, the trademark honey and cereal are there and the finish is ok.
    This is a straight shooter profile wise, not complex but simple and that is why at this price point it works for me, it is a daily sipper, straight and honest, with no gimmicks.
    I think this is one of the better 12 year ob on the market, i would buy a bottle no problem.

    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.

  8. Dr. J. Russell scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    • 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
