The nose is showing a considerable complexity. It is not a narrow range of flavors. It is convincingly fruity (apple, pears, citrus etc) and lively. The mouth is echoing the fruitiness/ sweetness range, but it adds a pleasant spiciness to it. The finish has a distinct speyside-ness to it… with a dash of smokiness. It is a dry finish. After a while a toffee note seems to grow.

Overall: It is a contemporary classic which is very reasonably priced. However, it is singing a loud E 150 song. The color is much too fake for any Whisky connors… Diageo stop that! Why do you shortchange your fine product with this unnecessary theater?

The Cragganmore 12 year old has one of the most divine noses going around...

It is a contemporary classic…that is the reason why I got it… however E 150 and the 40% are a poor choice from Cragganmore… Period! Why not bottle it with higher strength? It would support the quality of the malt. This is the reason why I would not rate it higher… even if I fully understand that some Whiskies receive here often unrealistic high grades… but certainly.. it is a very good Whisky
