Tasting Note:

A small, experimental batch of cask strength and medium-peated Cragganmore matured in traditional refill American oak casks. A style never released by the distillery before, it wreathes the elegant, smooth distillery character in a wholly unexpected aromatic and spicy smokiness. Pale straw in colour with good beading. On the nose it is mild with a light prickle. The aroma is initially elusive, both sweet; boiled sweets, apple pie and savoury; soft leather, sanded wood, and with a wisp of fragrant peat-smoke. Light to medium-bodied, on the palate it is pleasantly smooth in texture; the taste is immediately rich, sweet and savoury, then unexpectedly and appealingly becomes smoky. Adding a drop of water makes it really smooth, and slightly sweeter, yet it remains savoury. The spiciness and smokiness still come through. The finish is smoothly smoky, spicy and warming; lightly drying, with a lingering thread of smoke and a pleasing aftertaste. With water, smoother and longer. Leaves an intriguing memory of smoke on the tongue.
