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