Cragganmore 20 years old 2020 Special Release 70cl 55.8°
With this limited edition, it is the first time that a Cragganmore of this age has left the distillery founded by John Smith. Aged for 20 years in second fill barrels, the result is a magnificent whisky with woody, sweet and mellow notes.
Cragganmore, a respected Speyside malt, has complex airy aromas and spicy, sweet flavours. This original version was distilled in 1999.
The Special Releases series from Maison Diageo is a set of limited edition bottlings. This highly coveted collection is recognized and appreciated. For its 2020 edition, Diageo has chosen 8 Strength Single Malts Scotch whisky from rare and original casks.
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.
