Character Goatson
A classic Speyside Single malt aged in Sherry casks and finished in Port wood for a succulent, juicy profile.

1969 was a very good year. Mahatma Gandhi was born, Leo Tolstoy publish War and Peace, and Cragganmore Distillery was founded by John Smith near the waters of the Craggan Burn. Smith was an experienced distiller who had served as manager at The Macallan, Glenlivet, Glenfarclas, and Wishaw. Their Whiskies have been included in premium blends since day one, and their Single Malt releases are followed by a legion of fans. Today they are part of the Classic Malts range of United Distillers.

Since 1998 Cragganmore has participated in the Classic Malts Distillers Edition — limited edition releases of select casks from Scotland’s finest distilleries. Cragganmore Distillers Edition 2020 was distilled in 2008. The base aging has taken place in Sherry casks. This dram has then been finished for six to eight months in Port Wine casks. The combination give this Speyside classic a lovely juicy and rancio profile that makes us think of the word "succulent."

Nose / Aroma / Smell

The flavor profile is mouth-watering and succulent with a melange of fruits, from pear and fig through sultanas and stewed plums with a malty-grain chewiness on the back palate, and a touch of smoke.

Finish

Character Dogson
Cragganmore means "large rock" in Gaelic.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
Cragganmore still uses worm tubs to cool their Whisky after distillation. This is rather rare these days.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
