Cragganmore 21 Year Old Single Malt Whisky 2010 Bottling
One of only 5856 bottles bottled in 2010 and distilled in 1989
A fully mature and sophisticated Speyside Malt, this cool, calm 21 year old 1989 natural cask strength Cragganmore comes from American Oak Refill casks.
This first bottling at this age ever undertaken by the distillers, it makes a smooth companion to earlier special releases of a complex 29 year old, also from American Oak, and a spicy 17 year old.
Natural Cask Strength Bottling
Bright amber, with a mellow, nutty nose of marzipan and apple pear fruit, then more herbal notes. Adding water raises fragrant scents, while the marzipan yields to waxy fruit. Smooth sweet and cooling, with liquorice root and cinnamon. A warming finish, with gingery spices, with water, drying and herbal. Rich bodied and creamy, this Cragganmore elegantly combines fragrant fruity notes with a complex of smooth sweet flavours to make a whisky worth of long contemplation
From Cragganmore Distillery, Ballindalloch, Banffshire.
