Whisky Reviews for Cragganmore 12-year-old
10 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 81.90 points
- [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.
Fresh, mild, exotic fruits, peach, citrus, honey, floral notes.
Citrus, light fruits, becoming malty, vanilla.
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 :-)
Dried apricots with creamy rapeseed honey and fresh alcohol.
Very pleasant and complex taste, mild and sweet fruitiness.
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.
Fresh grain, with floral and herbaceous notes.
Light vanilla with citrus-fruity tones, medium-weight body and fine wood notes
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)
light, delicately malty, delicately flowery, not very distinctive
delicate malty, delicate hay, sweet like dried fig, cane sugar, honey with notes of heather, everlasting flowers, slightly woody
rather short and flat with aromas of straw, furry at the end
