Cragganmore Distillers Edition 2005/2017
Cragganmore's Distillers Edition series welcomes another delicious vintage! This 2005 vintage was finished in Port pipes for greater clarity and depth in its fruity, sweet notes. Bottled in 2017 at a smooth 40% ABV, there's plenty of room for those flavours to breathe, making this beauty well worth a try...
Nose: With syrupy dark fruit, cured ham and granary toast there's a dash of winter spices and oily walnuts.
Palate: A gorgeously balanced concoction of blackberry jam, iron-rich meat, firewood, fruit cake and nutty oak are eventually joined by more of those winter spices.
Finish: Fizzy oaky tannins and armchair leather simmer in a dry finish.
