Description

Nose

Initial burst: Sweet and inviting, with aromas reminiscent of candy like jelly beans and a gentle honey-like character.

Deeper sniffs: Reveal a grainy malty core, underpinned by subtle hints of smoke and dried fruits. Some reviewers also detect a touch of floral or herbal notes, possibly reminiscent of riverside meadows.

Palate

First sip: The sweetness from the nose translates to the palate, with a rich and full mouthfeel. Hints of oak influence come through, but it’s balanced by the fruity character imparted by the Port casks.

Mid-palate: The smokiness, a signature of Cragganmore, starts to emerge, offering a pleasant complexity. Underlying malty notes become more apparent, mingling with the fruit and smoke for a truly intriguing interplay of flavors.

Finish

Medium to long in length, the finish leaves a drying sensation with lingering oak and smoke. As the initial dryness fades, subtle hints of spice and vanilla emerge, adding a touch of warmth and sweetness to the aftertaste.
