Cragganmore 12 Years Old

Ballindalloch, on the banks of the legendary salmon river, is for many the home of the definitive Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Hugely complex, rich with layers of flavour and a whiff of smoke in the finish.

Expert Reviews
Insights from some of the best in the business

"A nose of sherry, brittle toffee, nuts, mild wood smoke, angelica and mixed peel. Elegant on the malty palate, with herbal and fruit notes, notably orange. Medium in length, with a drying, slightly smoky finish."

Gavin D Smith, Malt Whisky Yearbook 2015, p.97

"Balances richness and fragrance superbly."

Dave Broom 2003, Whisky Magazine, Issue 28

"Very accessible, and not given to grandiosity, but it's one of the Speyside greats. Good with some desserts. Try it with cassata."

Michael Jackson 2003, Whisky Magazine, Issue 28

"Definitely one of my favourites in the range. You could explore the layers for along time."

Rob Allanson 2009, Whisky Magazine, Issue 79

"The nose has honey, soft fruits and sweet spring meadow notes and is very inviting, and on the palate soft barley, summer fruits and a sweetness lead up to an almost tangy finish."

Dominic Roskrow, Malt Whisky Yearbook 2015, p.97
