Cragganmore Distiller’s Edition 2011

Country: Scotland
Region: Speyside
Type: Single Malt
Bottler: Distiller
ABV: 40%
Score: 93 points

This year’s 12-year-old edition was finished in Ruby Port casks, and the nose has notes of orange peel, dried apples, figs, raisins, red grapes, and a touch of nutmeg. The taste is dry and sweet with red grapes, nutmeg, allspice, brandy, dried apples, and a hint of smokiness for an incredibly complex mouthfeel. The finish is dry with red grapes, brandy, and a hint of smoke…slight sweet and lingering.
