Whiskybroker is an independent bottler specialized in bottling cask at rather pleasant prices. You can, for example, get a 17 Year Old Auchentoshan there for only 55 EUR. Just saying. Anyway, this Cragganmore is 20 years old and was bottled by Martin Armstrong, the man behind the label, in 2011. It is the oldest Cragganmore I have tried to date.

The nose starts off somewhat closed on malty notes. A bit classic for Cragganmore, I suppose. Becomes a bit sweeter on apples and oranges with a hint of peach. Rhubarb, too. Some honey and something floral, also a bit classic for this Speyside malt. That floral side goes crescendo. Mild spices.

Oily on the palate, with an immediate emergence of spices like ginger, aniseed and quinine. The grassy element takes the reins, before allowing apples and mostly citrus fruit to play along. A bit soapy, though, although that stays in the background. Midpalate, it dries a little. Green tannins.

Long finish on citrus and aniseed.

Quite a pleasant Cragganmore, that can do without water. The cask was shared with Master of Malt, the British online retailer.
