Cragganmore 10 Years Old
Taste the character and craft in every drop.VV

Smoky Rich Delicate Light

Region

Speyside.

Appearance

Bright pale amber.

Nose

Somewhat closed to start; mild for its age and strength. Traces of coffee, cooking chocolate, All Bran and saddle leather. Winey notes after a while (Madeira?). With water smoky, then fragrant wood notes (sandalwood?) and nuts (hazelnuts?). Herbal and spicy (bay leaves, white peppercorns, nutmeg). Despite all these allusions, elusive; restrained and complex.

Body

Medium to full, big, rounded.

Palate

Attractive sweetness in front, balanced by some fruity acidity. Develops into old coffee grounds and digestive biscuits. Spiciness opens up, arousing the appetite without quite revealing its inner feelings.

Finish

Drying, even to light bitterness. Lingering nutty flavour. Long, allusive (again), urbane, bittersweet.
