Cragganmore Distiller's Edition 2000 Single Speyside Malt Whisky

70cl/40% Each Distillers Edition expression undergoes a second (or ‘double’) maturation in casks that have previously held a fortified wine. The complexity of Cragganmore prescribes an out of the ordinary choice for a second cask finish. However, port-wine casks provide the perfectly harmonious partner. Sweet and deeply fruity oak-smoked malt; a long, dry finish. APPEARANCE - Warm Gold NOSE - Sweet (jelly-babies) and malty. Fruitier and juicier than the standard bottling. A hint of smoke. BODY - Light to medium, with rich undertones PALATE - Firm, sweet, with smoky undertones and fruitiness. Malt, oak and smoke at the base. Intriguingly layered. FINISH - Medium to long with fine, oaky expressions, from bananas and vanilla to cocoa. Much drier than it began.
