Just got a few new Cragganmore single malt Scotches in. Look out for Distiller’s Editions and other limited Scotch releases over the next few weeks. Cragganmore is on the short list of distilleries in Diageo’s “Classic Malts”, making it the definitive Speyside single malt. New in:
-Cragganmore 12 year 40% (80 proof)
-Cragganmore 1997 Distiller’s Edition (port finished) 40% (80 proof)
-Cragganmore 21 year Cask Strength Non-Chill Filtered 56% (112 proof)
The Cragganmore Distiller’s Edition is arguably my favorite port finished scotch, soft and creamy with some beautiful strawberry, raspberry and red fruit undertones. What really surprised me though was the 21 year old cask strength. Pretty sure it’s a one time release, I’ve never seen that vintage before anyway. It’s unbelievably complex with incredible notes of wildflower honey, heather, lavender, sea water, stoney minerals and the tiniest hint of peat. Gorgeous stuff, I highly recommend trying it if you get a chance, I was able to get six bottles for the shop. You want these!
