Cragganmore 21-Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Cragganmore 21 Year Old 2010

This rare malt was distilled in 1989, slept in American oak casks, and bottled in 2010. Not much of it is left, certainly. Only 5,856 bottles were taken to market. This Speyside whisky is 112 proof (56% ABV).

The Scotch Noob has a nuanced review of this Cragganmore 21-year that is nuanced, but ultimately disapproving. We’re a bit less jaundiced on this one. It is a light, dry whisky, showing light notes of orange marmalade and heather, along with a hefty dose of grain and barrel. If there is peat in it, one must strain to taste it. This malt is a bit humdrum for such a rare bird. (Rating: Good)
