Light and floral with high honey flavour

John,
Cragganmore is off the beaten path of the Spey Valley. Only those who have Spey in their blood dare venture through the untended paths, full of wolves and creatures of the bog, to reach this fabled distillery... Exaggerations aside, it may be in the Spey Valley, but Cragganmore boasts a fusion of honey and earthiness that is balanced and smooth. Highly recommend for anyone who wants to wander away from the three big Speysiders (Glenlivet, Glenfiddich, Macallan)

Ryan,
It had light smoke, which I liked, but a weird flavor hung with me from start to finish. Not sure if metallic is the right word, but the flavor reminded me of green olives, which I don't really like.
 
Brendan
Brendan,
Flaviar's profile is spot on. Sweet + smoke (although I found the smoke to be well-integrated and not overpowering at all). This is a nice step up for someone who enjoys Speysides but wants to dabble in smoke without going to Islay or the Highlands.

A light hint of smoke along with some vanilla and some fruit. A pleasant dram.

Smooth and mild, but the smokey with that hint of chemically is just not my thing. I think it has a pleasing blend of complexity... just not my profile.

Orange zest is always a surprise for me because in a Whisky it just does not feel it should be included. But then I remember that tasting any whisky is a journey from the nose to the finish... and for me both should be long so it is not a sprint but a marathon. Cragganmore delivers from the zesty herbs long breath of the nose to the Smoke on the lasting finish this journey is a pleasure and one that I enjoy repeating in every dram. However you need to be patience as the real journey only starts after the 3rd or forth sip when the depth of sweet honey and vanilla nose becomes the baseline for the taste of this 12 year old.

About as much peat as you'd expect from a Speyside, but more sweet with a slightly citrusy finish that lingers on the tongue. Enjoyable and sippable - great to have in the home bar for any scotch lover.

Relatively unimpressed, even after buying for an on sale price point. Smoky, yes. But with an acidic finish.

Wonderful flavor. Super Smokey. Very very smooth. Leaves an oily finish.
