Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:
Cragganmore-Glenlivet 16 yo 1999/2015 (46%, Cadenhead, Small Batch) Colour: straw. Nose: very interesting. This is obviously not heavily sherried, and while it starts rather gently – as many Speysiders would, on orchard fruits, sweet barley and honey – it really tends to become fatter and more herbal at the same time. Something camphory and eucalyptus-like, embrocations, liquorice… And even a fair deal of wood smoke, and perhaps even peat. Tinned apricots and mint oil. Interesting, really… Mouth: it’s really fat, almost thick as oil, with the texture of liquid honey. Some Ovaltine – which was expected – and some milk chocolate, on a solid herbal base that would involve mint, liquorice and eucalyptus again. I also seem to detect a little lemongrass. Finish: rather long, still fat, with the usual peppery side from the oak. Even a wee saltiness. Comments: really richly textured, this Cragganmore. Excuse me, Cragganmore-Glenlivet. And indie Cragganmores as are rare as Justin B. singing Johann-Sebastian B., so… SGP:452 - 87 points.
