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."

Character Dogson
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Cragganmore still uses worm tubs to cool their Whisky after distillation. This is rather rare these days.
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.
