Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Cragganmore, Prima & Ultima, 48 Year Old, 2022 Release, 1973

A pathfinder for the smooth whiskies of the modern day. The nose shows even more complexity than is usual; at first it is almost vinous, with almond oil. Soon it suggests tropical fruits, such as papaya and ripe mango, an usually vibrant profile given its age. The taste is sweet then pleasantly tart, with a hint of caramelised orange, finishing dry, with vanilla fudge.

Cragganmore

Cragganmore distillery takes its rock face of a name from the mountain in whose shadow it sits. And this is a whisky with many high approaches and hidden valleys of flavour. Known as the most complex aroma on Speyside, it must also be one of the most delightful because the distillery can’t keep up with demand. Founded by Speyside legend Big John Smith, Cragganmore was created using a pioneering flat-top pot still design to create the sweetest, most complex of malt whiskies. With layers upon layers, fruity, honeyed notes are often found, and of course the famous fruit cake and toffee flavours. One of the world’s most famous and influential Scotch whisky authors – the late Michael Jackson – also claimed Cragganmore whisky had “the most complex aroma of any malt”. The only way to discover that for yourself is of course to try them all.
