Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Dry oak,dry leaves. Less fresh fruit and more fruit jam. More savoury but equally clean. Good layering and no loss of complexity. Rum and raisin.
Palate: Softer and sweeter but also spicier: turmeric and coriander before a shift mid-palate into the fruit dominated realm.
Finish: Sloes and blackberries with a little nut. No obvious smoke.
Comment: The finish accentuates elements which are already in the whisky without dominating and obscuring the distillery character.

Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Bags of sweetness,fresh baked cherry pie,the oak has taken a back seat.
Palate: Fruit has moved into a more stewed state,still has plenty of sweetness,but more richness. The smoke is just there at the back.
Finish: Long and very warming.
Comment: The portwood has worked well here, enhancing the classic Cragganmore traits. Summer would be perfect for this whisky.
