Cragganmore 20 Years Single Malt Scotch Whisky 2020 Special Release Edition
A Cragganmore of this age has never been released from the distillery, making this elusive malt a much-anticipated expression. In addition, sweet and mellow woody notes emerge from patient maturation over 20 years in refill casks.
Cragganmore is a highly respected Speyside malt founded by a giant among distillers, John Smith. The ethereal aromas are among the most complex to be found in any malt, appearing and disappearing mysteriously like the ghostly flight of the Barn Owl as it quarters the wooded Speyside glens at twilight in search of its prey.
The mellow nose reveals fruity notes of ripe pear, soft melon and green banana, then savoury hints of soft glove leather and sanded hardwood. The texture is creamy-smooth while the taste is rich and sweet, delightfully balanced by a savoury mid-palate. The finish is long, velvety and spicy-dry.
