700ml, 40.0% abv, Scotland, SpeysideEach 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. "The Cragganmore has been finished in a ruby port wood cask, and the aroma is much fruitier than usual. This fruity character lingers on to the fuller-bodied palate, where oranges and port can be detected. It is notably less dry than the 'house' style, though ultimately the finish does dry considerably in characteristic Cragganmore fashion."
