Whisky Reviews for Cragganmore 1991 MoM

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.25 points

  1. Volanne scored this whisky 74 points Expert Senior

    Youngish, grainy, unbalanced... This one was not very inspiring to me.

    Tasted blind for whisky-distilleries.info WDTS:http://www.whisky-distilleries.info/WhiskyWDTS/index_EN.shtml
    • Nose
      Starts on orchard fruits. Fresh apple juice. With time, gets very grassy and grainy. We’re getting much closer to the raw material now. Crushed cereal. Porridge. Well, more on corn flakes than on porridge actually. Anyway, not my cup of tea, I’m afraid... Big whiffs of alcohol. Needs some water to be tamed. With water, artificial flavours appear. Pineapple sweets. Lemon drops.
    • Taste
      Starts on sweet flavours (back to the lemon drops). Getting really hot now. Burns my throat. Unfolds on liquorice, with a hint of violet, and perhaps a very discreet peat in the background.
    • Finish
      Long and drying, with a rooty bitterness.

  2. mmaclean did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    "A 20 year old single cask Cragganmore. We absolutely love this, it has

    just the right amount of sweetness, and just the right amount of

    maturity. Distilled on the 8th March 1991 and bottled in March 2011,

    this is a refill hoggie-matured Speyside whisky, with an outturn of 274 bottles. Non-chillfiltered, with no artificial colouring. Just pure, unadulterated deliciousness!"

  4. WhiskyNotes scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Releasing a Cragganmore is not a common thing, and this particular cask had a few tricks up its sleeves: a light aperitif-style nose and bursts of spices and citrus zest on the palate.
    • Nose
      Fresh and invigorating, almost a benchmark for middle-aged Speyside whisky. Juicy fruits (apples, peaches, oranges) with sweet malty notes and honey. More and more floral notes developing. A spicy layer, grassy notes and freshly cut oak add some depth. Typical and very good.
    • Taste
      Starts on vanilla. Sweet and fruity (apples and citrus again) which develops into zesty notes. Then it grows towards grassy notes, with quite some oak spices, ginger, tonic and finally a lemony / flowery (slightly soapy?) twist. A bit hot and tangy, not as easy-going as the nose suggested.
    • Finish
      Lengthy, on aniseed and citrus zest. Drying green tea in the very end.
