  1. Dre73 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Nice sweet whisky, but maybe a little too powerful and intense in the body. A little bit less punch would have made giving an extra point. But still very pleasant.
    • Nose

      Very sweet notes immediately, honey, some powder sugar, cake. Also some fruitiness, peach, orange. Not so much alcohol in the nose actually.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Very powerful and intense, alcohol kicks in now. Sweetness again, honey, vanilla. Some tangerine. Intensity dominates, wow.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Still powerful, peach, honey, cake. Very intense still. Long sweet finish.

  6. Prodigy scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    One of the better Cragganmore.
    Good value if bought directly from Bladnoch / Raymond back in 2010
    Hard to believe, but it was only £35 back then

  7. molar3rd scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Sharp entry on the nose with some alcohol bite, then vanilla ,dough apples and malt. We continue with sweeter and lovely tones of banana peel and cereal. all in all it’s like eating my cereal with banana and whisky sprinkled on it. Nice!
    Palate : Grassy up front. Then getting sweeter with malt honey coconut and Peppery tang. Vanilla and nuts. Good. But not outstanding.
    Finish : Malt, vanilla and a drying on wood.

    A nice single cask, not mind boggling, but certainly better then the others I’ve tasted so far (besides the Inchgower). A solid dram, at a good price.

    I'm having trouble finding the right words to describe the taste here. Very good whisky imo. Normally it tastes more malty if I remember well.
    • Nose
      sweet, vanilla, round, fruits, fruit blossoms?
    • Taste
      fresh, citrussy, wood mingled with malty notes.
    • Finish
      citrus with red pepper. good finish pleasant firey feeling. anis too.
