- 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.
Full gold colour with amber notes and a moderately intense aroma, with some pugency and nose prickle. When served neat there is a whiff of brimstone to start, accompanied by a singed or charred notes. Toffee in the background. When diluted Oloroso sherry, some turpentine or pine essence, with cider apples; some sandalwood and indeterminate floral scents become apparent. Leather and burnt matches are just detectable. Mouthfilling with a full, sweet start, followed by some astringency and a a short bitter finish. Some herbal flavours and dry sherry.
