Bronze – Best Single Malt Scotch 12 Years – International Whisky Competition, 2015
The Cragganmore Distillery was founded in 1869 by John Smith, who is said to have been the most experienced distiller of his day. He had been manager of Macallan, Glenlivet and Wishaw distilleries, and was lease-holder of Glenfarclas Distillery when he persuaded his landlord, to lease him the land to build a new distillery at Ballindalloch beside the Strathspey railway line.
Cragganmore is one of the whiskies in Diageo’s Classic Malts selection. The smoothness of the spirit comes from using flat top stills instead of the usual swan necks. Already distilled, the spirit is left to age in refilled sherry casks where it obtains its fruity and toffee notes. Slight smokiness can be felt on the palate, too. According to one of the experts in this industry, Michael Jackson, it is "One of Speyside's greats. Elegant and austere. Gradually, almost reluctantly, reveals itself. A palate blossoming with flavours, and a long, lingering, finish."
