Single Malt Scotch Whisky
$73 and less
Beautiful sherry notes waft up in heavenly fashion, oranges, dandelion.
Golden barley, marzipan, dark honey smeared on dark toast, almonds, hazelnuts, rose petals, and great complexity of all these flavors.
Medium length of flavors remaining upon the palate include creamy caramel, hint of lemon pith and grapefruit, wisps of very fine Cuban cigar smoke: H. Upmann, and finally salty sea spray.
This is a gateway drug for whisky novices. Cragganmore will reveal to you the majesty of single malts if you as a novice have ever wondered what all the fuss was about.
Cragganmore is a stunning exercise in complexity of subtle flavors of honey, barley, lemon and sea spray.
Widely available and generally reasonably priced, what can I say?
