Crawford's 3 Star Bottling Note
A & A Crawford was a whisky blender and merchant which established in Leith in 1860. The 3 Star blend was launched just before the turn of the century, followed by the deluxe 5 Star Blend which was launched in the 1920s.
The nose is quite supple and light. There are notes of honey and spice with a touch of malted barley and a little oak. The palate is subdued and of medium-body. There are notes of toffee and a little smoke, there are some mixed peel notes with a nutty character. The finish is of medium-length with oak and barley sweetness.

I have been drinking this blend for over 40 years as my father-in-law who used to socialise with the Crawford's directors liked this whisky a lot and even preferred its smooth taste to the 5 star version. He introduced it to me.
