Whisky Reviews for Cragganmore 1993

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.21 points

  1. recursiewhisky scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    This is a huge step up from the standard Cragganmore version. But the Port cask influence is unremarkable. Yes, there are some hints of berries there but it’s not a Port cask whisky like e.g. the Amrut Portonova. It’s quite nice and drinkable and has a sweet and sour profile.

    A nice surprise! 

    • Nose
      A sweet, subtle, fresh and balanced whisky with aromas of fresh fruits, apple, pear, banana, berries (mainly blueberries, raspberries and blackberries), red fruits, grains, toffee, pear drops, malt, peach, oranges, floral tones (violets and dandelions), vanilla, acacia honey, icing sugar, cinnamon, hint of white pepper and subtle oak.
    • Taste
      A sweet spicy, fresh and balanced whisky with aromas of forest fruits, slightly sour lemon tone, green apple, pear, tangerine, orange juice, acacia honey, sugar, vanilla, peach, hint of tannins, grains, mal;t, tea, cinnamon, pepper, turmeric, ginger, more citrus and subtle oak.
    • Finish

  4. Roel scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    This would go well with chicken, mushrooms and blackberries on rice and maybe some rosewater. Nice dram, better as the standard Cragganmore. 84 points.
    • Nose
      Medium strong first impression of sweet sour fruits, wine and grain; all returning as apricot, strawberry, floral honey, chocolate. Also we get vanilla, ginger and dark fruits (blackberries) from the port cask.
    • Taste
      Nice, balanced and clean on more woody and feinty notes, still quite some flowers. More details: Cake, roasted wood, honey, leather and tobacco. Not a swimmer.
    • Finish
      Rather long finish on port wood and dryer malty notes. Some spices.
