Cragganmore 25 Year Old
11 April 2020

Cragganmore 25 year old is a splendidly mature, serious, and exceptionally intriguing whisky full of exciting and evocative aromas and flavours. At 25 years old it offers a wonderful balance between sweet and dry, with a complexity and depth that repay a certain amount of contemplation. Naturally elegant in structure, it softens with water yet this also dulls its fabulous complexity; it is best enjoyed neat with a glass of water on the side. This particular bottling is a limited edition natural cask strength single malt from a combination of two cask types chosen for flavour alone; refill European and American oak casks, filled in 1988. Just 3,372 individually numbered bottles were produced for the world to enjoy.

The late Michael Jackson, one of the world’s most famous and influential Scotch whisky authors claimed Cragganmore had “the most complex aroma of any malt”, and it is in older releases such as this 25 year old that such complexity is allowed its fullest expression. The flat-topped spirit stills at Cragganmore are of a design unique to Scotland, a design believed to encourage reflux and thus foster an inherent complexity in the new make the spirits (though some have been known to jest that the distillery roof was simply too low to take a conventional still). Whatever the actual reason, the result is whisky that invariably parades fruity, honeyed notes alongside the famous fruit cake and toffee flavours.    Read More
