I thought I would start off this with revisiting some of my earlier observations. The first few are from 2010.
Cragganmore 1992 Distillers Edition. A Speyside single malt. This is a distiller’s edition, where the scotch is finished in a special cask. In this case, the second casking in a port wood.
It retains some of the complexity of the Cragganmore 12, with a soft and sweet entry to the palate, with increasing spicy/pepper, orange elements. The port wood subdues the usual Cragganmore smoke finish. It is a very entertaining single malt.
A little about the distillery: “Cragganmore Distillery is located in the beautiful Spey Valley in Spesyide, and nestles on the banks of the legendary salmon river, the river Spey. No visit to Scotland is complete without a visit to this delightful little distillery. Cragganmore is home to one of the few distilleries that boast flat top stills which gives Cragganmore it’s unique character and makes it a must see for any visitor to Scotland.” http://www.discovering-distilleries.com/cragganmore/
