Cragganmore (2016 Special Releases)
This Cragganmore was bottled as part of the 2016 Diageo Special Releases and tasted at their launch event in London.
A non age statement dram created using a mixture of refill american oak, rejuvinated american oak and european oak casks this was sweet and tasty and ranked really highly with me.
You can pre-order/buy from specialists such as Master of Malt or Robert Graham
Thanks to Diageo for the invite to this prestigious event.
A really gentle nose here, lemonade and American cream soda, lashings of vanilla cream with a sprinkle of sugar, juicy fruit chewing gum and a slice of fresh honeydew melon, rounded off with a touch of mixed nuts
Sweet, creamy, freshly made pina colada, more American cream soda and lashing of vanilla cream, malt loaf and digestive biscuits, a slight herbaceous note and a slightly spicy creamy butter icing,
Herbaceous, sweet, delicious
