  1. Archer scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    What a pity that after the very promising nose he no longer delivers. Already at the start it appears pale and arbitrary, the finish is quickly put down.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Fleshy notes that mix with fermented fruit. Musty and damp forest floor, damp lichens. Freshly sliced mushrooms. After a while, a pleasant note of grooved orange peel mixes with this muff and mildew - and even a very slight smoke note can be seen.

      Oh no, that should have gone in a completely different direction after this extraordinary nose - no, should have. Comes thin on the tongue. Bitter orange jam with pieces, a little pepper, almond chocolate. Some wood, light smoke. Moderately dry.
    • Finish

      Becomes increasingly dry and leaves a short sharpness in the throat in the throat, which could not be guessed at the beginning. A few more shades of oranges, that's it.

  2. Wild Thing scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Adorable !!! Clearly fruity, Apfe & citrus fruits are in the foreground. The honey sweetness and floral notes are also clearly there. In the background wood, vanilla and caramel notes.
    • Taste
      Strong. Chocolate, vanilla and dried fruits. Very sweet, ripe bananas and seasoning.
    • Finish
      Medium long and a bit dry.

    Great introduction to Cragganmore!
    • Nose
      Pleasant sherry and oaky notes are there right from the start. It is
      quite floral and sweet in the nose. No overly pungent aromas though.
      Everything seems to be interwoven quite well.
    • Taste
      Very sweet with tons of honey and barley sugar. This dram drives
      salivation like no other I`ve had before. Again, no overly flashy aromas
      here – something that Cragganmore is very famous for or so I hear – yet
      I like it very much after only a few sips.
    • Finish
      ery long for a 40% ABV whisky. There is a minimal bitterness from the
      European oak cask, however, again this is extremely well woven into the
      character of this bottling.

  7. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Compared to the standard 12yo (WID: 162) it looks a bit more mature and has more wood influence. So already better than the "normal".
    The nose is pretty good. In the mouth, however, it is not particularly exciting. Not bad, but more for the side.
