Cragganmore 12 Years Smoky 70cl 58.4° 2019 Edition
The Cragganmore Scottish distillery unveils its first peated expression in Diageo’s Special Release 2019 series.
Aged in American oak barrels for 12 years, the result is a tasty, peaty and unique Single Malt. It develops citrus notes mixed with more spicy touches without erasing the influence of oak cask aging.
At the heart of this “golden triangle”, where the Spey and the Avon merges, the famous John Smith founded in 1869 the Cragganmore distillery. His reputation of best distiller in all Speyside was quickly established. Smith conceived atypical stills for its Cragganmore whisky: a flat capital replacing the traditional swan necks, enables the reflux of the heaviest alcoholic vapours, for an even more sublte Single Malt. The unique character of Cragganmore ranks the distillery in the Classic Malts Selection. Created more than 20 years ago, this selection recognises Single Malts crafted in the tradition of iconic distilleries, and offers the most impressive whisky styles Scotland has to offer.
