This is the classic 12 year old from Cragganmore. The smell is very floral and full of honey and nectar sweetness. Behind this layer loads of vanilla is balancing great with the light oak influence.
The taste is a bit spicy at first, followed by some great honey sweetness. I get some malt and oak as well that stays to the finish. Extremely smooth. Like drinking fresh cold river water. Only with alcohol!
A classic dram that I would describe as classic Scotch whisky! Perfect for a hot summer day in the garden. I would love to try a dram like this at cask strength! With that said, be careful with water, as the ABV already is as low as 40. I will give this 83/100 (20/21/21/21).
