  1. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Note by Wilson & Morgan;

    Independent Cragganmores have always been extremely rare, so we are glad to be able to offer to you this very special bottling. Its full dark gold colour shows lots of promise, and it smells broodingly dark, sugary, with notes of Demerara rum. You can feel some sherry, but it’s not an overwhelming wine bomb. Actually, it smells very 'old school', powerful and rich without being unbalanced. At the palate it’s very intense, slightly nutty, extremely creamy: its thick and syrupy texture is absolutely striking, with notes of buttery biscuits, gentian root, a touch of coffee, rum filled chocolates, and a hint of smokiness. Again, it tastes like a malt from decades ago, very 'classical' and with a subtle and well integrated influence from the Pedro Ximenez.

    sample from a friend
    • Nose
      Fairly rich and buttery at first. Bitter-sweet caramel soaked in rum.
      Sweet and candied on Bailey's with a dash of orange oils. Hint of raisin
      jam. Perhaps even lightly burned honey. In the back are some echoes of
      the malty base. Great stuff so far. (with water) Just a drop or three,
      easy does it! More fine, sweet, and beautiful coffee. Fine sandalwood,
      and aged sweet cigar wrappers. Less rich, but no less lovely.
    • Taste
      Lighter mouthfeel than I'd anticipated; I nearly expected to find a
      thick caramel coming from the glass. Less sweet as well and oak is in
      the middle of it. Coffee with chocolate flakes and a raspberry blended
      into the field. (with water) More coffee and milk chocolate, perhaps
      even some rum-balls. Surprisingly very light feel.
    • Finish
      A return of sweet water playing into fine dark chocolate, a drop of
      coffee, and a fond welcome from mixed red berries. A pleasant
      transition. A very charming dram, with all the makings of a pour complex
      and enjoyable, factors that only cast the light mouthfeel into greater
      and more frustrating relief. If this were more substantial, it'd be
      excellent, so I'd give it a steady mark

    A sherry like I like them. Powerful, quite complex and demonstrative but without trace of alcohol
    • Nose
      Saffron, curry, pepper, lots of chocolate, coffee, a little bit of cooking. A very elegant sherry mainly on spices. Beautiful Power, no alcohol.
    • Taste
      A lot of material but no alcohol. Wood, tobacco box, chocolate, coffee, more curry, walnut, praline and caramel. Gourmand, in addition the texture is very fat, very thick. Super interesting.
    • Finish
      Long on these notes of caramel (toffee)

    a sherry whisky that may seem classic but I appreciated the typical (animal notes). It does not have complexity but I like this style because different from many other sherry whiskys

    Dropped as a blind under the WDTS: http://www.whisky-distilleries.info/WhiskyWDTS/2013-05/Bottle4.shtml#cragganmoreTwentyWM9313
    • Nose
      A frank attack on sherry. Woody, dried fruit (nuts, nuts), plum confit. Quite classic after all, we feel a little alcohol but in a "medicinal" way. Aeration develops animal notes close to leather and musk, touches very light sulfur.
    • Taste
      concentrated, oily, on wood and animal notes (quite present).
    • Finish
      long on the leather

  5. ALouis scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    Color: Gold supported
    Nose: quite sherry on nuts, cocoa, honey, dried fruits, vinous notes and quite a lot of spices.
    Palate: mouth identical to the nose with the nut even more present.
    sherry or whisky?
    Finale: long on nuts and honey
    tasted as part of the WDTS: http://www.whisky-distilleries.info/WhiskyWDTS/2013-05/Bottle4.shtml#cragganmoreTwentyWM9313

  6. Dr.Nose scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Review after a blind
    tasting. 
    • Nose
      At first spiciness
      with wood tones, but also raisins (sultanas).
      After that clear sweet sherry tones (Pedro Ximénez)
      as well.
    • Taste
      Somewhat bitter
      with a slight sweetness and spicy. In the taste
      the sultana influences are present also.
    • Finish
      Medium long, spicy and again some light sultana influences.
