User Reviews of the Cragganmore 12 Year Old

Good not great

I like a good dram of Crag 12 once in a while. It's different than my usual heavy peated scotch. There's a very nice fruity and oky touch on the palate that I like to have say I'm sitting next to a bonefire. That being said, I don't personaly taste the uniqueness and deepness of other more complex scotches. Still, pretty good value.

my choice whiskey

I studied abroad in Scotland this past year and my mission was to choose two malts to bring back to the US with me. For the price, this is the best whiskey I had in Scotland. Noted, I am a poor student and a lot of the whiskeys I tasted were not a whole lot more expensive than this and I am relatively new to whisky.However, this whiskey is a solid choice for anybody who is not absolutely rolling in dough. It is extremely well priced for the flavor complexities. It is great choice to pull out when you have guests. It is smooth enough, complex enough, and cheap enough to be a pretty bad-ass part of anyone's entertaining repertoire. It's also a good representation of a spayside malt. My favorite thing by far though is it's musical progression(nose-palate-finish). I think the different stages of tasting flow exceptionally well in a dram of this. A lot of whiskys are jarring in their progression, which can be exciting like a mosh pit, but Cragganmore 12 is like watching koyaanisqatsi for the first time, musically elegant, and simple, but slowly developing this sublime complexity as it unfolds.

Meh

quite a dull dram. not bad but nothing good to say about it either. at this price and whisky level, would stick to a balvenie

speyside at it' very best

cragganmore 12 yr scotch is one the best whisky's i have ever tasted.i wish it had more backbone e.g.43% abv.and no dam'n chill filtering.but all this nit picking aside,it's still a great dram do yourself a favor get some!!!!

Sweet and soothing

As an Islay lover I find this too subtle and smooth. If that's what you're looking for in a whisky, go for it. But I don't recommend Cragganmore for folks seeking more powerful flavors. That being said, this is an excellent example of Speyside character and worthy of a try. If only they would cut down on the chill-castration - sorry, I meant filtration...

Best for price

I have bought quite a few scotches Pricewise and I've been searching Scotch quite a few years I must say this is one of the best I've tasted for less than $100 I would definitely recommend .

Lovely interesting nose

I agree with consensus that this is a fine standard Speyside without much complexity or style apart from its fabulous nose. Diagio ought to cut the chill-filtering and bump up the ABV to 45%, then they could have a real winner here.

Самый лучший виски, что пробовал. Супер.

I agree, it's a first class beginner malt

So I've always been drawn towards peaty Islay malts, with Ardbeg and Lagavulin on top. A friend treated me to a dram of this, and I realised instantly that there is a beautiful world outside of Islay. This malt is sweet, elegant and highly drinkable, whoever you are, I suppose.

my favourite..this is the chosen one for me

10th October 2013

very delicate

...and pleasant to the palate and nose.a decent,smooth , lasting finish as well...too easy to drink and I better not get too attached to it or I might become an alcoholic.agree with the other post, this is definitely not sherried.

18th July 2013

Wrong desscription

This whisky is not sherried... Diageo say if you email them that its first fill bourbon!

Very good | Nice single malt

I will try to express my opinions without using one and same word "experienced" whiskey lovers. Aroma: The first attempt - a pleasant, sweet smell of sugar ... if divide the whole range of flavors in parts - I do not know what it looks like, but I do not feel nuts, no milk chocolate, there is no floral scent like in Glenlivet 12. After a drop of water and a couple of minutes, clearly felt in the flavor of something fresh, something similar to an apple and that's all. The main flavor - something pleasant and sugar. Taste: Exactly the same as the smell. Drunk very easy and pleasant. Unfortunately I could not feel anything in the taste of the familiar. Best suited word - spices. Finish: too pleased, long, felt the heat and after the third sip unobtrusive taste of bread. The general impression in comparison with Glenlivet 12 - perfect.

Классика Спейсайда. Евгений из Украины

Еще один из 6-ки Классик Молт. Очень хороший и яркий представитель региона. Вкус и запах: миндаль, пряности, ваниль и корица. Приятный согревающий виски. (Translation using Google Translate: Another one of the 6s Classic Malt. Very nice and bright representative of the region. Taste and smell: almonds, spices, vanilla and cinnamon. Pleasant warming whiskey.)

Not a bad malt, but nothing special.

It's a fine, but rather pedestrian dram. It's lacking that zip and sparkle that really makes you sit up and take notice. Not what I'd spend thirty-one of my pounds on. Don't get me wrong, I'd recommend buying a bottle if it's on special offer, but I'd say you could get quite a few far more exciting single malts for the same price.

Agree with the one who wrote "great way to enter..."

I'm new to whisky. I mean, I've tasted a bit of this, a bit of that, and I don't usually appreciate it enough to enjoy it. But I tasted this one and I must say it's great. I know nothing about whisky and it makes me want to know more and try other Speyside whiskies. I'm really glad I bought it. It's the best I've tasted to far, but I havent tasted many. To be continued.

8th March 2013

Very good

Cragganmore is a reliable all-around whisky and a great introduction to the Speyside style. There's enough going on to keep experienced drinkers happy, and it's smooth enough to entice new ones.

Great way to enter the world of Scotch Whisky

Newer whisky drinkers will undoubtebly appreciate. More different tastes than most entry-level scotches.

10th March 2012

Pretty good for only 12 years old

Nose: Intriguing unique nose, slightly earthy to me, very slight hay Palate: Rich, slight bite, hint of sweetness, taste slightly unfinished. Finish: Slight bite continues, spice-mix of pepper and cinnimon. For a 12 year old, pretty good. If you can't afford 18 year old, this is fine. I am spoiled for the 15+ year old Scotches, but was very interested in trying a speyside. I can't wait to try one older.

23rd January 2011

A bit dissapointing

Take instead Johnny Walker Green Label Pure Malt, where it is an ingridient.
