Mackillop’s Choice Cragganmore Tasting Notes

Posted: November 22, 2014 in Cragganmore, Scotch Whisky A-G

Mackillops Choice Cragganmore 1990 (24 year old?) 56.4%

Bourbon Cask 1418/ Tasted: May 2014

Quite a dark and malty nose with treacle, macerated baked fruit and barley. With time it becomes slightly herbal with hints of camphor and thyme.

Plenty of soft, brown sugar coated baked fruit to begin with on the palate. Very deep with malt, earth, treacle, hints of walnut, liquorice and a developing herbal character. The alcohol balances and freshens, but the treacle-malt combination lingers impressively. A touch of slightly drying dark spice emerges on the finish.
