- ABV 40%
All six of the 'Classic Malts' have released limited edition 'Distiller's editions', which are finished in special casks selected by the master distiller of each distillery. Historically Port pipes were as common as Sherry barrels when finishing whisky. The Distiller’s Edition Cragganmore returns to the past and brings a new dimension to this benchmark malt, via the finishing of the whisky in Port-wine cask wood. In doing so, Cragganmore’s Master Distiller has found a wonderful partner, adding succulent plummy fruit notes to the malt of this great Speyside whisky. This edition was bottled in 2009.
Other reviews… Cragganmore is a deep malt but its richness is often obscured by its fruity sweetness. A period in port pipes allows this element to be amplified. The black currant is now fully fruited and acts as a flavor bridge while the meatiness that sits underneath and often unseen is revealed. Think cherry pipe tobacco, clove, and dark fruits. Sweet, but not too sweet, and always identifiably Cragganmore. For me, the pick of the bunch. 89 points
