I love the complex, smoky & peaty Islay whiskys, but the Cragganmore convinced me of tasting more Speyside malts in the future.

Nose: Very(!) refreshing, fresh fruits (citrus), fresh grass, vanilla, slightly spicy (tobacco?) and smoky Body: Light to medium, but very smooth and delicate Palate: Semi sweet with a wide range of fruits; slightly smoky and spicy Finish: average length

I really agree with Michael Jackson that Cragganmore is one of the most complex malts.

The Cragganmore has probably the best nose of any whisky I've come across - and the taste isn't a let down. Good review.

The Crag12 is in my top 7, for sure. Have you tried the 1992 CragDE - finished in a port cask - amazing dram!

Just been out for a drink in South London with a pal, was hoping the pub would serve Crag, but settled for a Laphroaig (sigh) .

The Crag is well on my radar now.

Nite.

Tried this for the first time at Hopscotch in Vancouver. Bit crowded and noisy and the glass I had was not the best for nosing, but my impressions were that this is a Scotch that does absolutely nothing wrong. Balanced, flavourful, very tasty. Will definitely be revisiting this one.
