Whisky Reviews for Cragganmore 1986 HL

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.50 points

  1. Jackson05 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Tasted this at the Ardnahoe distillery on Islay.

    I must commend the other reviewer for leaving tasting notes, many people do not and whether you agree or disagree it helps everyone to be more informed. In this instance I disagree, and by a great deal! It really just comes down to personal taste and preference.

    This Cragganmore has a oily-waxy-herbal-honey profile that is quite complex and I’m sure would benefit from a drop or two of water, which I did not have access to. An egocentric malt that asserts itself in any lineup. I really like it.

    Cragganmore is a blend workhorse, so official/unofficial bottlings are not as common. A bit of a sleeper distillery I think. Was one of the more memorable drams on my trip to Scotland. Certainly deserves a score better than 53, in my opinion, but it is too expensive for what it is.

    Not my thing, avoid. 

    Single cask Cragganmore - not a common sight, as much of their spirit makes its way into blends. This one was particularly well-aged, being distilled in Jun 1986 and maturing in a refill hogshead for 30 years, until January 2017. 167 bottles were produced for Hunter Laing's Old & Rare Platinum range.
