- Cragganmore is a Scotch whisky distillery situated in the village of Ballindalloch in Banffshire in Scotland. The distillery was founded in 1869 by John Smith on land leased from Sir George Macpherson-Grant. The site was chosen by Smith both for its proximity to the waters of the Craggan burn and because it was close to the Strathspey Railway. Smith was an experienced distiller, having already been manager of the Macallan, Glenlivet, Glenfarclas and Wishaw distilleries. The Strathspey Railway is now disused and forms the Speyside Way long-distance walking route.The stills used in the second distillation (the spirit still) of Cragganmore whisky are unique in having a flat top and being relatively short. The stills' shape has a definite effect on the taste and aroma (nose) of the whisky. Shane Healy is the current master distiller.
Peppery oak and perhaps some minted honey & orange rind. Butter, the feel is like melted butter with a warming toffee flavour. Then, it gets a little spicy and tingly (think ginger on a good sushi roll). There more wood influence then port. Lasting finish, oaky, spiced orange (the taste of the smell of oranges that have cloves stuck in them).
