John Smith, the founder of Cragganmore Distillery, is said to have been the most experienced distiller of his day. He had been the manager of Macallan, Glenlivet and Wishaw distilleries, and was leaseholder of Glenfarclas distillery when he persuaded his landlord, Sir George Macpherson-Grant, to lease him the land to build a new distillery at Ballindalloch beside the Strathspey railway line, in 1869. The distillery lies at the 'gateway' to Speyside, near to where the River Avon flows into the Spey. Further downstream, the distilleries are around almost every corner.

our tasting notes

Nose

A combination of sweet floral fragrances, riverside herbs and flowers with some honey and vanilla. “The most complex nose of any Single Malt Scotch Whisky”

Taste

A strong malty taste with hints of sweet wood smoke and sandalwood.

Finish

A long, malt-driven finish with light smoke and hints of sweetness.

about

Today Cragganmore is a benchmark for Speyside. Highly regarded by blenders, Cragganmore has traditionally been a large component of the McCallum blend which, in Australia, sells for around one-third of Cragganmore’s price.

For many, this is the definitive Speyside Whisky. This whisky is quite the hidden gem in Diageo's Malt Whisky Collection. The whisky is filled with heather, honey, nuts, and pears. Delicate smoke comes in on the palate along with dried cherry and more honeyed nuts. It is a shame that this whisky doesn't get heralded more than it does, but then again, maybe it's okay to keep this one a secret.
