Review: Cragganmore 20yo MoM


Cragganmore 20yo/1991 cask 1146 MoM – 53.5% – Straw in colour, indicating bourbon finish. Classic dunnage warehouse smells; earthy, slightly woody and damp, and a big dollop of barley maltiness. A nice age on the palate, easy to drink as is. The palate follows very much on from the nose… It’s fairly thick, lightly fruity, a bit spicy and warming, the age seems to work perfectly for it. There’s a good long finish which is reasonably complex and moorish. Enjoyable dram with a slight tropical note at the end. Sadly now sold out / discontinued, but keep and eye out for any future similar bottlings. A classy, quality Speysider, I expect nothing else from the chaps at master of malt!
