I have to admit to having a soft spot for Cragganmore as it was the first Single malt that made me sit up and take notice of whisky over 26 years ago! when tasting this i was almost transported back to that happy memory with that combination of a more waxy and herbal Speyside style and this is a great example of this Classic Malt, whatever the age!
