Cragganmore 12 Year Old Reviews

Very nice

One of my favourite speysides. Very smooth

Distinctive almond and honey notes through a smooth slow burn

A friend, knowing I’m a fan of good Scotch, brought along a 200ml of Cragganmore 12 on a five day canoe-camping trip in the boundary waters of New Brunswick/Maine.

It stayed in the cooler ‘til the last night and he said “Have at it if you like, I might have some too.”

I tried a bit with water and wasn’t impressed at all, then snuck a nip right from the bottle after he said he didn’t want any.

I told him “I’m liable to drink it all, then!”

“That’s why I brought it!” he said.

I kept nipping at it now and then when walking by the table and loved the almondy, honey smoothness of it that crept through the smooth burn while I kept it in my mouth before letting it slide down.

I ended up polishing off the small bottle after a bit, walking the root-bound shore and watching the nearly full moon along the St Croix.

With its natural tastes emerging through a nice smooth burn, it seemed just the right Scotch for being outdoors for days on a wilderness adventure.

I’d gladly buy a larger bottle to see how I like it in other environments.

Recommended if you like to try new tastes and are open-minded.

A lovely dram but not for Islay fans!

Cragganmore is quite simply, a cracking dram.
Everyone has their own opinion, quite right too......but a prominent distillery manager (not Cragganmore) describes it as his absolute favourite. His opinion is for me, more valuable than the haters here. I loved it from my first taste, in the early 70s.

Great, easy going whiskey. Wish it were easier to find here in the southern USA

Inoffensive tasty dram

Subtle, but lasting flavours. Quite delicate, very very little/no smokey flavours as the description states. Good dram, easy to drink and has you wanting more. Each to their own, if you like a laphroaig or the like, you wont like this.

Certainly not a powerhorse! Superb as a nightcap with a tiny splash of “Adam's Ale”

A fine delicate rather feminine Scotch, closer to The Dalwhinnie than Islay whiskeys. But the flavours are quite delicious. Not a dram for the macho palate - I use Lagavulin when I'm in that mood - but a subtle and quite splendid whisky.

Ok but underwhelming

absolutely should have been 43%. As it is, its very basic and delicate. Doesn’t take water at 40% or you’ll risk loosing flavor when its falling apart.

Elegant Speyside

I have enjoyed several bottles of this over the years and I thought it was time to reacquaint myself with an old friend. It's as elegant and complex as ever: citrus fruits and nuts and flowery perfume and a long sweetness on the finish. It's not for you if you prefer big sherry Speyside whiskies like Glenfarclas but it is subtle and gentle and a very pleasant aperitif.

Okay+

It's a pretty good whisky, nothing special tho. I doubt I'm ever gonna get another bottle of it.
I would recommend it as an entry level whisky.
